Boxes on Xeon

I have been away from Linux for a few years. I recently upgraded an HP xv6000 Workstation to Fedora 36. I tried to create a Fedora 37 beta using Boxes, but it is VERY slow. It do not remember it being this slow when I used qemu directly to create VMs. Am I not remembering correctly. I am about to give up on Boxes and go back to using qemu directly.
