  • Give it a try. Try the Trial copy and find out.

    It is unlikely that running Fusion will slow down your retina display.
    The software works in conjunction with the Mac. It only uses as much as it will need.

    However a good rule is to have enough Memory (RAM) to run both the MAC and Fusion at the same time.

    There are also setting that can tell Fusion how to behave within the Mac.

    I don't think you'll see any degradation in graphics on the Mac side. On the PC side it may have not been optimized for the Retina so it may not look as cool.
