Title: VMware Virtualization With OpenGL Still Smacks Oracle VirtualBox

Summary: "Earlier this year I said VMware's virtual GPU driver was
running fast for Linux -- in comparison to Oracle's VM VirtualBox 3D
guest acceleration support. This continues to be the case with VMware's
OpenGL stack leading the way with superior support and performance.
Recently I ran some desktop virtualization tests under VMware Fusion
4.1.3 and Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.1.18 from the Retina MacBook Pro with
OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion host. Even with the OS X host, VMware's 3D
support exposed to the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS virtualized guest was much faster."
