Parallels Desktop 17.1 allows M1 Mac to fully support Windows 11

Microsoft officially launched Windows 11 at the beginning of this month. Although the new operating system is first launched, it is inevitable that there will be such and other small problems, but after all, it is a new generation of Windows, and many players are still willing to install it to experience it. This may also include Mac users, but because Mac computers do not have a TPM, they can only use virtual machines, especially Mac users with M1 chips. Now the well-known virtual machine software Parallels Desktop has launched a new version 17.1, just to provide Windows 11 operation support to M1 chip Mac users.

Parallels Desktop 17.1

In fact, as early as August, when Parallels Desktop 17 was launched, it claimed that it could support running Windows 11 on Apple’s own macOS Monterey. With Parallels Desktop 17.1 version, Parallels also said that Parallels Desktop fully supports Windows 11.

In the beginning, it was mentioned that installing Windows 11 requires a TPM security module. Mac computers naturally do not have this stuff, so Parallels Desktop 17 uses a vTPM to solve it. Not only the M1 chip but also the x86 version of Mac computers can use Windows 11. In addition, Parallels Desktop 17.1 also improves the performance of the next 3D graphics, including some Windows games such as World of Warcraft, Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition, Tomb Raider 3 will have better running performance.
