Fusion and Citrix performance terrible (as in not even able to reboot VM)

This post was originally published on this site

Fusion Version 11.1.0 (13668589)

MBP2018 15 inch (discrete Gfx)

macOS Mojave 10.14.6


VM: is Win10 64bit Pro

6 cores, 6GB

Using remote desktop via Citrix, to a company Win10 machine


If Settings -> Accelerate 3D graphics is selected in VMWare Fusion then the remote desktop session in VMWare Fusion is UNUSABLE

It beachballs so hard that I cannot even send reboot or shutdown, I have to go back to Activity Monitor and kill vmware process


If Settings -> Accelerate 3D graphics is disabled then the remote desktop can be used, but still uses ENORMOUS amounts of CPU resources.


Any plans to fix this? I need the 3D Graphics acceleration for other (non-RDP) applications, so right now VMware Fusion is useless for me.
