Virtualization Station performance on "high-end" Qnap

Been trying to find some reviews regarding perfomance on higher end Qnap systems regarding virtualization station.
With higher end im thinking systems w Ryzen 1500b, Xeon-d, Core/Ryzen.

Anyone got some input regarding this, pref ppl that actually have systems w the above cpus.
Been trying it out on my TS-453A w ssd and 16GB memory.
Painfully slow no matter what drivers i use etc etc.

In the mood for an upgrade and the H973AX seems like a sweet spot if virtualization performance is ok.
I'm not asking for bare metal performance and gpu performance is not relevant but it would be nice if basic gui performance such as scrolling on a webpage was decent or above performance wise ;)

On my TS-h886 I run virtualisation station with 2 windows 10 VM's.
Performance where it comes to normal use like browsing, office apps or so is in my opinion good, not great, but good enough.
Just do not expect wonders like you already mentioned yourself also.

In any case in my experience so far, the QuTS Hero OS is not helping the performance, on quite some tasks it's often sluggish, like storage manager or file station, far slower then my previous TVS-682, which has a core I3 processor.
This combined with the fact that app support is lacking for apps like QVR pro and Photo station f.e. would had convinced me to stay with QTS rather then QuTS Hero, but for now I'm sticking with it for a little while longer to see if there will be progression with future firmware updates.

In this topic, the same question more or less came along;

Good luck with making the right choice.

I would start by comparing the Passmark ratings of the various CPU's in the QNAP models you are looking at. That will give you a feel for the relative performance you will see. Remember you need to look probably more at single core rating and then multiply by the # of cores you will allocate to your VM.
