      Hello folks! As some things are being fixed, we'll keep you updated. Per hour the Forum Rules don't have a dedicated "Tab", so here is the place that we have our Rules back. New Users Lounge > [READ] - InsanelyMac Forum Rules - The InsanelyMac Staff Team. 

Improve VM performance (Mac OS 10.6.8 on AMD with Linux)

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have a 10.6.8 VM in VMWare running, it works fine so far, but the VM seems a bit slow. I guess its because there is no GPU acceleration (or something similar).

The VM can use 4 GB of RAM and 3 of my 6 cores from my AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. My GPU is a AMD HD 7970.


Is there a possibility to improve the performance of my VM? (I don't want to install Mac OS alongside my already dual boot with Linux and Windows. I need Mac OS only for one app, just like Windows. Linux is my daily driver.)



Thanks for your help!
