VMware Fusion users running OS X Yosemite in a Fusion virtual machine have reported graphics performance issues, especially in comparison to running previous OS X versions in a Fusion VM.
We’re working hard to deliver a fix. Until the fix is released, here’s a customer-suggested workaround to temporarily disable beam synchronization. Making this configuration change will significantly improve graphics performance when running OS X Yosemite in a Fusion VM.
Thanks to @rtrouton for his blog post on the subject, and many thanks to VMware Fusion users for your support and patience while we work on this fix.
Best wishes for 2015!
