    Hello! I would like to buy the following MacBook: Pro 14 M3 Pro 12-Core/18GB/18GB/1TB/18-Core GPU.

    I would like to ask you to confirm (or not) that with Parallels Desktop, I will be able to run seamlessly, i.e. without system crashes, DIALUX EVO, a photorealistic program with calculation and raytracing, which runs exclusively on Windows.

    That is, whether a virtual environment can ensure that I use 100% of the features of the MacBook in question.

    The Apple M3 chip has an ARM architecture (unlike the x86/x64 architecture typical of classic desktop processors).
    And in a virtual machine on a Mac with an M1 chip, it is currently possible to run only Window 11 ARM -- the Windows version for processors with ARM architecture (for example, it is used on devices with mobile chips like Microsoft Surface Pro X). And indeed, despite the built-in compatibility layer that allows you to run x86/x64 applications on Windows ARM, some applications, or drivers do not work.
    We suggest you contact DIALUX EVO application developers and ask whether they fully support ARM Windows 11.

    Thank you.
