Chrome and VSCode are extremely slow

This post was originally published on this site



I have VMWare Fusion Professional Version 11.5.3 (15870345) installed on a MacBook Pro (16-inch) 8-core Intel Core i9 and 16Gb of RAM running macOS Catalina (10.15.4).

I use VMWare Fusion to run Windows 10 Pro (Version 1903, OS build 18362.778).


Here are the characteristics of the VM:

  • Processor and memory:
    • 8 processors cores
    • 8Gb for memory
  • Display
    • Accelerate 3D Graphics is checked
    • Always Use High Performance Graphics
    • Use full resolution for Retina display is checked


I have a problem with Chrome and VSCode. The two applications are extremely slow. Other applications (Windows new Terminal, Microsoft Edge, File Explorer, …) seem OK.


Does anyone have an explanation or a solution to the problem ?


Thank you !
