  • That would result from comparison

    Emulated network adapter

    Emulated network adapters are available on all of the virtualization software platforms and allow virtual machines to be connected to virtual networks. Virtual networks can be connected to other virtual machine network adapters and to host network interface cards.

  • Synthetic network adapter

    Synthetic devices are new with Hyper-V and provide better performance than emulated network adapters. Synthetic network adapters require Virtual Guest Services (VGS) to be installed on the virtual machine. VMM installs VGS for all supported guest operating systems.
