The *vmware* graphics driver now supports 3D acceleration in VMware Workstation 12
Previously, the *vmware* graphics driver in Red Hat Enterprise Linux did not support 3D acceleration in VMware Workstation 12 virtual machines (VM). As a consequence, the GNOME desktop was rendered on the host's CPU instead of the GPU. The driver has been updated to support the VMware Workstation 12 virtual graphics adapter. As a result, the GNOME desktop is now rendered using 3D acceleration.
