VMware Workstation vs. Oracle VM VirtualBox

Which one is better for 3D (games)? 3D games works bad for me in VirtualBox.

You would need something that supports GPU passthrough/sharing. VMWare technically supports it IIRC, but it's very bloated and hard to use, and only works on Linux. Red Hat's KVM is pretty darn good at doing that, but again, you'd have to be in Linux and have to pass through a full GPU to be able to use it. The only one that actually shares a GPU's resources is Windows Hyper-V, which is pretty nice, but you can only have a Windows-based VM. 

 

Basically, pick the one with the fewest drawbacks for your scenario, or if you're gonna play 3D applications, just do it on the host OS.

linux. works fine in hyper-v

 

If you have suppported hardware gpu partitioning in hyper-v is the best option here

To my knowledge GPU partitioning does not work with Linux guest OSes because of how the guest and host machines share the GPU driver. If you have found a workaround to that, I'd be glad to know, but I don't believe it's possible.

Neither of those is a good option for any sort of gaming, especially 3D gaming.

Does Hyper-V support single GPU (AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series)? I can't find any tutorial for Hyper-V GPU Passthrough on YouTube.

EDIT:

 

I will just use Windows 11 on internal NVMe SSD and Ubuntu on external SSD. For testing i will use VMware Workstation/VMware Player.
