Improving performance

Use virtualization extensions to share processor resources

Virtual machine acceleration improves the performance of the simulator 1130%. This is done by allowing multiple operating systems to share x86 processor resources simultaneously using virtualization extensions. To use these extensions with the simulator, your CPU must support one of the following virtualization extensions:

  • Intel Virtualization Technology extensions (VT, VT-x, vmx)
  • AMD Virtualization extensions (AMD-V, SVM)

Virtualization extensions are enabled through your computer's BIOS and are usually turned off by default. Check the documentation for your operating system to find out how to enable virtualization extensions.
