Is an i3-8100 + Asrock B360M Pro4 enough for 2 VMs? + Wi-Fi passthrough?

Recommended Posts

Hi again!


I decided not to go for old hardware, I'm going to buy brand new ones, especially an i3-8100 on an ASRock B360M Pro4 board with 8GB of DDR4 RAM (for now) 

I would like to run a Windows for light gaming and macOS for Xcode.

2-2 cores for both VMs. The board has 2 PCIe slots, so I can pass through 2 GPUs to the VMs. Both parts do support VT-x and VT-d.


How well will this i3 perform in a VM compared to a pure Windows system on a C2Q Q9400?


Another question: If the motherboard has a Wi-Fi slot, can I pass it to Windows and leave the integrated one to macOS or reversed?
