    Shouldn't vmware fustion be able to see 8 virtual cores . I'm running sierra but fusion won't let me choose more than 4 virtual cores. Or does OS X not handle v cores like that.

    Is it a 13 inch?? They are all dual core with hyperthreading.

    I know this isn't exactly answering your question, but I think you'll get better performance if you allocate less cores to the VM. The more cores you assign to the VM, the harder it will be to allocate the processing resources for it and will actually reduce the overall performance. I'm not sure what version you are running, but this doc for version 7 has recommended allocations: https://pubs.vmware.com/fusion-7/in...UID-4EABCE73-69AB-4665-A5BB-B34C5B736CC7.html
