    Hello,

    I recently purchased a Macbook Pro with the Radeon Pro Vega 20 GPU. I notice when configuring my Win10 VM, the [Graphics] -> [Advanced Settings] menu does not contain an option for 3d acceleration via Direct X like I have seen in the past.

    My concern is that my previous laptop which was a Macbook Pro 2017 (Mojave 10.14.6) with Radeon Pro 560 seems to handle my 3d applications better with Direct X 10 enabled under 3d Acceleration.

    Looking on my new Macbook (Catalina 10.15) at [Apple] -> [About This Mac] -> [System Report] -> [Graphics/Display] shows:

    Also I should mention, the MacBook that works with Parallels as I would like it to is a 2017 MacBook Pro with a Radeon Pro 560X GPU. It has Parallels 14.1.3 business edition installed on it, and it contains the option for 3D acceleration via Direct X 9 or 10 in the Graphics Advanced Settings drop down.

    The program I am trying to run is Altium Designer 2019... there is a night and day difference between my old MacBook w/ Parallels 14 and my new MacBook with Parallels 15. Not only does the older run smoother, there are certain features within Altium that causes the Parallels 15 MacBook to crash where as the Parallels 14 MacBook seems to run Altium flawlessly.

    Same problem here: iMac i9 Radeon Pro Vega 48 8GB, no 3D or Direct-X-options in Parallels 15 with OS X 10.14.6.
    The application Pytha 24 (a 3D CAD-software) does not start
