I am researching for hours but I could not find. I am using windows 10 as main operating system. In order to build mobile app, I installed sierra on latest vmware 12 pro workstation. I have done it vmware KVM.I want to increase performance of sierra. I have done beamoff and installed darwin tools. It's perforfamnce boosted a bit. Now video card on guest machine seems 128 MB. How can I increase video card memory. Laptop is including 2 gb nvdia 540m. I do not use guest machine as 128 MB.How can I do that? Is there any program or vmware tool? And can you suggest more beneficial way to using xCode instead of vmware?


Run VMware Workstation, open the VM, and choose VM > Settings > Hardware > Display. Make sure that the "Accelerate 3D graphics" checkbox is ticked, and then there should be a "Graphics memory" ComboBox that allows you to increase the amount.

  • I did what you said and increased to 512 MB. But when I run sierra , it seems again 128 MB – Burak Nurçiçek Jul 30 '17 at 23:02
  • @BurakNurçiçek I can't help you with that part. Running macOS inside of VMware Workstation is not supported. – jamesdlin Jul 30 '17 at 23:42
