Improve Macintosh’s Graphic Performance in VMWare
First post in this new blog! 😀
So, I want to share my experience with my Mac. What? Yes. I’m a Microsoft Student Partner, but I’m open to all technologies. 😉
I have use Macintosh for 1 year, but I rarely use it. I just use it to learn how to code iOS app in my spare time. I installed my Mac in VMWare. It’s really good, but the biggest problem is the graphic performance is poor. I have 2GB vram, but VMWare just allow me to use 128MB for my Mac. Well, to be honest I feel uncomfortable when using it.
I found a way to improve my Mac’s graphic performance by install a graphic driver called VMsvga2. This is a driver for Mac that running as VMWare guest OS. You can download it from http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/
After you download the file, copy it to your Mac in VMWare and install it. After finishing the installation process, the installer will prompt you to restart your Mac. Just do it.
Congratulation, your graphic performance is increased. I can feel the difference and feel more comfortable when using it. Good luck! 🙂
