Same issue here...no TPM.
Same here, my Windows VMs are practically unusable, with very high CPU load. Please fix this soon!!
Having exactly the same issue. Testing VMware Fusion with Windows 10 and TPM. Now I cannot work with it anymore.
Working fine here with Mojave 10.14.6.
Update: I spoke too soon. It worked fine for a little while, but is now unusable.
Same here! We need a fix real fast... :-(
VM: Windows 10, 6 GB
Haven't upgraded yet - are there folks reading the thread who have, and are NOT having problems? Trying to gauge how widespread this might be.
My VM is not completely stuck, it's as if it freezes at random intervals every ~30 seconds and stays frozen for 5-10 seconds. In between those freezes, it seems to work normally. Seeing similar behavior as other users after upgrading to 10.14.6 yesterday. Issue seems to occur whether using full screen mode or windowed. VMWare Fusion is 11.1.0, latest available. Mac Activity Monitor doesn't show high/abnormal CPU usage when the guest is idle.

Seems this isn't specific to Windows guests.
Ever since installing the latest macOS update last night I've begun experiencing terrible sluggishness when running anything fairly CPU-intensive with my Ubuntu 19.04 guests, even if it's merely upgrading software packages or launching a browser.
Running htop in the background on the guest while the problem is occurring indicates there's not a corresponding maxing out of memory or any swap file usage, and the virtual CPU spiking appears to coincide with heavy disk IO activity.

Thank you for staying alert and notifying about the issue.
While we watch this closely and find more about the issue, a list of hardware on which the issue is notice, should also help verify the trend.
I see a MBP 2017, 2018 do we have others?
My 2 Macs are MBP 13'' 2015 and MBP 15'' 2018, both having the same issue.
Encypted vm has become unusable. non encrypted vm are working ; but with a little snag
My VMWare Fusion also slow on MBP mid 2012 i7 16GB RAM and SSD. CPU is sky high and the Disk also pick to 100%. The Fusion version is 10 (latest build) Windows 10 1903 (4 vm core cpu and 4096Mb RAM) unusable but Windows 7 works as expected also linux without GUI works as expected.
Okay, my Ubuntu guest is working fine after I changed three things in its VMware settings, but I'm not sure exactly which one was responsible for working around the problem because I didn't boot the guest again until I had done all three:
- I un-split the 20 GB hard disk: In Settings -> Removable Devices -> Hard Disk (SCSI) -> Advanced Options I un-checked Split into multiple files then clicked Apply
- After the split disk images were finished being merged into a single image, I disabled encryption: In Settings -> Other -> Encryption & Restrictions I un-checked the Enable Encryption option
- After the VM was finished being converted to unencrypted form, I changed Settings -> Other -> Advanced -> Troubleshooting from Default to None
This is of course not a solution, since the real cause of the problem still exists, and although I don't care about split disks or logging settings I do need encryption.
Hi, iMac 2017 also fails. 16GB RAM, 8GB for the VM. Also with VMWare encrypted drive as I need to use TPM.
I want to move from Parallels to VMWare Fusion. With this issue it's stuck booting Windows.
