Yeah Ubuntu 64bit. I'm thinking the slowdown may have something to do with the VM rather than ubuntu itself.
In the virtual processor setup, I've enabled the Intel VT-x since the processor supports it. I'll go into BIOS and turn it off and try with the automatic settings instead. I'll play around a little more till Open Source wins the day
EDIT: It seems the windows 7 system processes for BOINC were still running at the time I benchmarked the VM. The actual performance is: 3858 Floating Point and 16451 Integer. So it's marginal, but there is defenitely an improvement in speed.
