    Metal graphics support for macOS Big Sur virtual machines Get the world's first Metal graphics support for macOS virtual machines - run Mac apps like Maps, Pages, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and many others. Note: Metal graphics is supported for macOS Big Sur (and later) virtual machines if Parallels Desktop 16 is installed in macOS Big Sur (and later) as well.

    This sounds like cool feature. on paper.
    I have tried that, yeah it works, macos guis feels a bit better compared to older framebuffer-only driver, especially in retina mode. Personally I have found no real world usage to that function. it's sad this feature is metal-only and completely ignores opengl.
