    I get 2 fps (!!!) with CineBench Open CL test under WinXP in Parallels. :(
    I have a Mac Pro Quad 2009 with an ATI Radeon 5870 card. :confused:
    Is there a way to solve this problem?

    TIA

    Yes, and although I have 4 cores and 8 threads, Cinebench sees only 1 core and 1 thread under Parallels.

    did you go to "hardware" to check the 3d acceleration? Also did you choose 4 cpu on general options?

    I changed the CPU setting to 4 cores. 3d acceleration is enabled.
    CineBench Open CL score is 1.93 fps!
