    Like the title says, any update on when (or if) Parallels will have support for Direct X 12? I am running Parallels 18.1.1 and Windows 11 PRO with the newest updates and it still appears that games that require Direct X 12 still won't work with an error message about the display.
    Thanks.

    Someone from Parallels mentioned in another thread that they can't talk about their plans. My guess is that, if the recent changes to Metal in Ventura are indeed enough to get DirectX12 working on M-series, we will get support for it with Parallels 19.

    Thanks Mike. Hopefully you are right. (Assuming that Microsoft and game companies aren't using Direct X 13 by then......)

    For a long time after the release of DirectX12, you still saw a large number of games that were DirectX11 or had a fall back settling for those. I suspect DirectX13 will have new hardware ALU requirements that will encourage game developers to have a fall back to DirectX12.
