If you have tried to mix Hyper-V and high end 3D graphics (in the parent partition – of course) you have probably noticed that the performance is bad. Unfortunately – for the time being – the answer to this problem is that Hyper-V has not been designed to be used on systems running high-end graphics.
It has been designed to be used for server consolidation.
However – we have just published a KB article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961661) that explains why this happens. If you need to run Hyper-V on such systems your best option is to either:
- Put a lower end video card in your server
- Use the standard SVGA driver
