There is no way you can judge the performance of Windows 8 from a virtualised session running over the internet. Windows 8 on hardware as low spec as an AMD C-50 APU is fast in everything, and apart from being beta and incomplete is a great experience. The performance with splashtops RDP app is nothing like running Windows 8 on native hardware.
