VMware Fusion 8, a solution to run Windows on a Mac without rebooting by enabling Windows applications to run like native Mac applications, has been released in South Africa.
The new version offers support for Windows 10, accelerated performance and enhanced connectivity and includes over 50 new features, and is ready for the latest Apple and Microsoft innovations to deliver the ultimate Windows on Mac experience.
Whether running Windows on the latest Macs such as the iMac Retina 5K or connecting Retina Macs to 4K displays, VMware Fusion 8 offers users a crisp Windows on Mac experience on mixed environments.
It lets users take advantage of the latest features in Windows 10 like Cortana, the Microsoft speech-enabled virtual assistant, or the new Edge web browser, allowing users to quickly, easily and safely install new or upgrade existing virtual machines to Windows 10 with VMware Fusion 8.
Users can also run VMware Fusion 8 on El Capitan public beta or install El Capitan in a virtual machine to test its new features, capabilities and application compatibility without disrupting the current Mac environment.
For Mac laptop users, VMware Fusion enables power coming out of their Mac’s battery to be used as efficiently as possible, and provides adaptive graphics switching to give users the ultimate performance while least impacting battery life.
With added support for DirectX 10 and OpenGL 3.3, VMware Fusion 8 can deliver up to 65 percent faster graphics over the previous version, giving users more responsive and fluid graphics for day to day work while delivering maximum performance for highly demanding 3D applications.
VMware Fusion 8 is available immediately for download and purchase from vmware.com for $79.99.
Customers who have purchased VMware Fusion 7 between July 29, 2015 and August 25, 2015 are eligible for an electronic upgrade to VMware Fusion 8 or VMware Fusion 8 Pro at no additional cost.
