VMware Fusion 8 Outperforms the Competition

The team here at VMware were very proud to see Fusion 8 outperform Parallels 11 and VirtualBox 5 in a recent battery of tests performed by TekRevue.com

“[…] Fusion 8 is the clear winner, taking 11 out of 18 tests and pushing on three more.”

 

VMware Fusion came through on top largely due to our new virtual graphics hardware which outperforms the competition and delivers stunning DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3 graphics for all kinds of applications.

 

“Fusion 8’s superior OpenGL graphics implementation results in a score that’s 66 percent higher than Parallels 11 at 720p, and 92 percent higher at 1080p.” 

“[…] Fusion 8 made much larger and more impressive performance gains this year, both compared to its predecessor and in a direct comparison with Parallels.”

 

Benchmarking an application for comparison is something of an art, and when that application happens to be one designed to run other operating systems, the challenge of testing it many times across many systems can be pretty daunting.

All told there we counted over 700 test runs from 18 categories in total! A huge undertaking for sure, these guys deserve a break.

 

It’s a great time for Parallels users looking to switch to the best and still take 40% off the regular price of Fusion 8 and Fusion 8 Pro!

    Very impressive. You guys deserve to pat yourselves on the back. It did point out a single glaring performance problem with file transfers though – hopefully that will be addressed quickly.

      We definitely noticed that during the review, and we look forward to the opportunity to improve =)

    The link takes me to the EU store and doesn’t offer the upgrade from Parallels.
