With the phase out of the BIOS, the VGA BIOS and VGA hardware is also gone. That is pretty big step! VSVGA.SYS is basically a big wrapper around the video BIOS and VGA hardware. VEFI.SYS partly emulates the VGA hardware. So there is some slowdown, but on new UEFI only systems the system is that quick you should not notice it.  But it should be faster then DOSbox possibly, because the rest of the hardware is "real".

A lot of the stuff for me does not look totally unknown as I looked at in my Mensys days working on eCS... It just never got of the ground.
