dependency chatr/tree for achieving flash multi media performance ?

I have spent the weekend trying to comprehend the interdependicies between
the various components in the softwarestack to achive usable Flash media performance on the SunRay 3
series of thin clients.
My starting point was VDI 3.3.0 with Virtualbox 4.0.10 with windows XP SP3 + virtualbox 4.0.10 additions and the SRS windows drivers from SRS 5.2
using windows internet explorer 8 with adobe flash 10 addon. This setup delivers resonable multimedia performance for 360p and 480p resolutions.
After upgrading to VDI 3.4.0 + Sunray Firmware from March 2012, with the same Virtualbox 4.0.10 windows XP Sp3 + VBOX 4.0.10 additions + VDI 3.3.0 SRS windows drivers IE8 + adoble flash 10
I still experience resonable to good flash adobe multimedia performance . Even 720p resolution works with the SUNRAY 3 unit connected to gigabit LAN.
When I try to introduce newer components in the Virtualbox Stack , multimedia performance drops drastically.
I could not implement virtualBox 4.1.14 at this point because of the new remote VRDP authentication that does not let the session trough as it defaults to "external"
and we dont have this configured at this point in time.
I tried upgrade to Virtualbox 4.0.14 with windwos SRS drivers from SRS 5.3 but without upgrading the virtualbox additions, using the same IE8 and flash10
Also tried Flash 11, here too, multimedia performance collapses to a stuttering slowness.
These tests of mine is not performed on my home computer but on enterprise class production systems .
I would be happy with a chart of some sort where validated combination of software components that yield good Flash multimedia performance is documented.
some thing like the following compatability matrix is needed. ;
VDI Version, SRSFirmware version, VirtualBox Version, MS-windows Version , Virtualbox additions version , SRS drivers for windows version , MS-IExplorer version Adobe Flash Version .
Is this information documented somwhere ?
