Like bringing honey from freezer to room temperature? I haven't benchmarked any of it, but for general purpose (i.e. GPU accelerated GUI) it's quite fine. But the gamers are still not all gung ho about it, so I'd think video editing demands would be much the same or greater possibly.

I'm a big fan of VM - that's all I use on my Mac. It's vastly easier to setup, maintain, and is safer data integrity wise too. But I don't consider it so much from a performance perspective.
