I too would like to see numbers. I suspect the answer is going to be that
AVIC performs poorly in CPU overcommit scenarios because of the cost of managing
the tables and handling "failed delivery" exits, but that AVIC does quite well
when vCPUs are pinned 1:1 and IPIs rarely require an exit to the host.
