Hello,

Finally I got QEMU-KVM to work but video performance under DOS is very low (QEMU 0.12.3 stable and QEMU GIT master branch is fast, QEMU KVM is slow)

I'm measuring 2 performance critical video performance parameters:
1.) INT 10h, function AX=4F05h (set same window/set window/get window)
2.) Memory performance to segment page A000h

So BIOS performance (which might be port performance to VGA index/value port) is about factor 5 slower, memory performance is about factor 100 slower.

QEMU 0.12.3 and QEMU GIT performance is the same (in the measurement tolerance) and listed only once, QEMU KVM is much more slower (details see below).

Test programs can be provided, source code will be release soon.

Any ideas why KVM is so slow? Any ideas for improvement?

Thnx.

Ciao,
Gerhard
