Performance on host system?

When Hyper-V is activated on 2008/R2 the host system becomes a client of the Hyper-V server. The experience is seamless to the user but the transition happens when it's activated. So my question is, how does this affect performance on the host system for things like games or other programs that rely on direct access to hardware? There is usually a performance degradation that happens when running software like games in virtual machines. Has Microsoft found a way around that on the host system?
