Yes, in WinAFC I set vmware-vmx to have a lower priority than the GPU clients. I also assigned them each to 2 different cores of the CPU. So one VM is on CPU0 and CPU1, and the other is on CPU2 and CPU3. I also split up the GPU clients to spread out the workload. I put two GPU clients on CPU0 and CPU1, and the other two GPU clients on CPU2 and CPU3. Again, with only the GPU clients up and running my total CPU usage is only around 1-3%.
