    Hi @DavidA49, would you please update to the latest Parallels Desktop version (17.0.0, or 1.7.0 for App Store) and check this aspect one more time? Please note that you need to update Parallels Tools in Windows. We have reworked our display driver that no provides better synchronization with the Mac display and not limited to 60Hz anymore.

    it happens with windows 10 too, HDR just does not work now.
    I however can't say anything about 120FPS support as my screen is 60FPS, but I can confirm that settings says no HDR, and my HDR retraced unity app does not look the same without it

    no proof on my non-unity games, thats why I use a VM in the first place.


    here's the full version of the image in case it becomes vintage or you need true proof:

    Hi @MatthewT9, do I understand correctly that you want to play some Unity-based Windows games that have HDR support? Currently, HDR is not supported in Parallels Desktop.

    As for the display refresh rate, starting Parallels Desktop 17, the refresh rate is not limited to 60Hz anymore, Windows will sync with the real display refresh rate, be it 75, 120, 144Hz.

    your previous statement in this thread says that the new version should have HDR
    so does it support it or not ?

    No support for HDR, please accept my apologies for the disinformation.
