Slight keyboard lag in Windows 11 ARM?

    I don't think this is really a bug, it just seems to be an unavoidable characteristic of running Windows 11 for ARM under Parallels on an Apple Silicon Mac. I'm running the latest version of Parallels 19 on a Mac Studio M1 Max with 64GB of memory. Everything works fine, the only slight annoyance is that there is a very slight keyboard lag when I am touch typing. You will probably not even notice it if you are not a fast touch typist, but if you are you will have a feeling of a very slight sluggishness. It isn't really enough to hinder work.

    The effect is mostly psychological: The only way I can describe it is that there is a subjective feeling of more "effort" while you are typing. When typing on a normal Windows machine, or directly under MacOS, typing is instantaneous. In Windows 11 for ARM under Parallels 19 I always have the feeling that there's a very slight delay after each key press

    Again, it's not really enough to slow down work in any way, but it is subjectively distracting enough to be annoying. Does anyone else experience this?

    Maybe not slow enough for for you but it really hinders my productivity and the productivity of many others.

    There is an existing thread for the issue

    Parallels should do something about this, as someone that primarily use parallels for software development, it has been rendered useless for me. And I am wishing I never paid for Pro subscription.
