I set up a VM on my Windows 10 home PC. I have a Ryzon 7, 64Gb @ 3200Mhz... it's a decent machine.

However, my VM runs very, very slowly... painfully slow. I am even running Linbuntu... the light OS. Is there a possibly obvious issue that I'm missing?

Are there any other dragchutes on the build? Such as USB and HDDs attached?

Remember there are prior complaints here. https://www.google.com/search?&q=virtualbox+slow+on+"ryzen+7"

It appears that you are not alone as I read https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=93748

I'm seeing similar reproducible very laggy perf with Win10 guests on VB 6.1.0 hosts, with Ryzen 7 3700X CPU. All's good on older CPUs.
