As VMware Workstation 12 features full Windows 10 support, you’ll be able to run it as a host, as well as a virtual machine. It is also supported for both Auto detect and Easy Install, and you’ll be able to move any Windows 10 PC to a virtual machine.

The new version of the software also brings some new performance improvements. There’s a huge speed boost of up to 3x  when suspending and resuming encrypted virtual machines. 3D graphics are up to 36% faster, and the support for DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3 means even more improved compatibility. The new version of VMware workstation is also optimized for 4k UHD (3840 x 2160) and QHD+ (3200 x 1800) screens.

Along with the performance improvements, the new version also comes with improved features. For example, IPv6 NAT network support is added, tab handling has been improved (drag open tabs into a new or existing Workstation window), as well as the echo cancellation for Sky and Lync. VMware Workstation 12 Player features all the important features of VMware Workstation 12, and the re-branding brings more consistency to the range.

As for the VMware Fusion 8, it now fully supports Windows 10 and El Capitan, and brings you a couple of new options that will enhance your working experience. It’s also much easier to find files from Windows Spotlight, because of the natural language support. You can also launch Windows 10 apps from the Mac, with the Fusion Applications menu. And Windows 10 apps can run alongside Mac apps without any problems, with the help from Split Screen and Unity modes.
