Utilisation and Speed for Workstation seems to be capped

This post was originally published on this site

When running Vmware Workstation, without any other app running, CPU and Speed Utilisation seems to be capped to approx 30% Utilisation at all times.

Is there a way I can change or remove this limitation so Workstation uses more of the CPU when required?


Note: This utilisation does not change whether I open up 1 or more VM’s in Workstation.

As soon as utilisation shows i.e. 34%, it drops back below 30% so it looks like there’s some 30% limit.


I’m currently running Vmware Workstation on a Windows 10 Pro Version – OS Build: 19041.450

When I took the screen shot, I had 3 VM’s running.
