I have been doing some testing with the new Rhino 6 display engine. I have a simple script which opens and spins a model then records the frame rate and closes.

I have been testing on several different GPUs and for dedicated graphics cards there in a consistent improvement, testing between Rhino 5 and Rhino 6.
Here are the results and configurations from two machines with dedicated graphics cards:
However when I perform the same tests on a virtual machine running on an nvidia Quadro FX GRID card, there is minimal performance gained moving from Rhino 5 to 6. In fact for certain files I got a worse frame rate in Rhino when moving to Rhino 6. Does anyone know of any driver or rhino settings that can be changed to allow Rhino 6 to work better in a virtual environment with shared GPUs?
