VMWare Windows performance problem Intel 13th Gen

Some time ago, I encountered a significant challenge in my virtualization environment, since I was given an MSI computer with an I7-13620 processor to work with, which has quite a few cores, good ram memory and a hard drive, but when it came to Virtualization had very low performance and the solution I found with VMware turned out to be highly effective. I think the problem in question is related to the management and performance of our virtual machines, which were suffering slowdowns and shared resource problems, due to hyperv and BIOS configurations.

Some of the solutions applied were:

  • Run your VMware Workstation as Administrator. Right-click your VMware shortcut, Properties, Advance, check “Run as Administrator”
  • Disable Hyper-Threading from BIOS
  • Disable Secure Boot from BIOS (This is the last step that works for me)

Help commands:

powercfg /powerthrottling disable /path "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\x64\vmware-vmx.exe"
powercfg /powerthrottling disable /path "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmware.exe"
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V-All

Some of the solutions I applied would not have been possible without these great resources:
