I finally was able to get Enhanced Mode working with some help on Windows 10 Pro in Hyper-V.
While it drastically improved the performance, I feel like it is still sluggish. I've read some people saying they are getting something like +60FPS while I feel like I am getting maybe 20-30 FPS.
I guess I've been spoiled by Parallels on macOS where running a Windows box feels like running it natively on the hardware.
The steps I followed were:
- In Hyper-V select "Quick Create"
- Select "Ubunutu 19.04"
- Select "Create Virtual Machine"
- After it is created I edit by giving it 8GB RAM minimum and 6 cores
- Start up the new VM
- Install Ubuntu
- Launch Terminal
sudo apt install linux-azure
sudo apt autoremove --purge
- Turn off the VM
- Restart it
- Enhanced Mode is now working
Again, a significant improvement, but still sluggish.
What else can be done to improve the performance or achieve what some people are claiming to get (>60FPS)?
Running on a Razer Blade Advanced early-2019 (i7-8750H, RTX 2080, 64GB RAM, 4TB Sabrent Rocket NVMe M.2 SSD).
I did try switching between my Windows Power Plans (Best Performance, Balanced, Power Savings)... there was no discernible difference.
I did try
linux-vm-tools. There was no noticeable difference in performance than what is described in the steps above.
