Hey Gamers, we have some great news for you! As you might know, Parallels Desktop for Mac 8 includes experimental support for DirectX 10, Windows functionality that is related to game programming. We wanted to share with you some of the PC games we have tested and which we believe have acceptable playability and frames-per-second (FPS), a common measure of game performance. Here is the list of tested DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 games: Anno 2070 Assassin Creed III Battlefield 3 Bioshock 2 Call of Duty: Black Ops II Civilization V Dirt Showdown F1 Race Stars Formula 1 2012 Hitman: Absolution Need For Speed: The Run Sleeping Dogs Snipper Elite V2 NOTE: As with a hardware PC, the Mac hardware you are using will have a significant effect on game performance. Video games require both a powerful processor and a very capable, modern video card. We did our testing and performance tuning on the high end Mac models, so you will get the best performance on the latest iMac and the MacPro with an ATI video card. Don't expect recent games to perform very well on a MacBook from several years ago. We also recommend that the Windows virtual machine you use to play these games be configured for 2 CPUs, and at least 2GB of RAM. Note, however, that assigning too much RAM to a virtual machine can actually slow down performance, since the Mac itself may not have access to sufficient RAM. And, of course, be sure that you are using the latest version of Parallels Desktop for Mac 8. If you havenâ€™t found your game in the list above, it does not mean it wonâ€™t work in your virtual machine. Please share your experiences here in the Forum for our team and other players.
