    GTX260+Q6600.

    GPU+VMWare SMP(2cores)

    GPU+VMWare SMP(2cores)+VMWare SMP(2cores)

    What would give the best PPD?

    With 2 SMPs running the GPU drops a lot.......

    How are you setting the priorities? You need to make sure that the GPU client is slightly higher than the SMP, then your GPU will go back to its maximum points, and the VMware will be very slightly below the maximum. Plenty of threads on the board about this. :search:

    Yeah as CNL says when running VMware SMP clients you need to set the priorities correctly otherwise you end up starving the GPU of CPU resources and its PPD drops like a stone.

    I don't remember receiving any PMs from you about stickying particular threads, so if there's something you would like, just let me know.
