Launching this week, the latest version of Parallels brings with it improved gaming performance and integration with all the new features that Mac OS Catalina has to offer.

Parallels usually talk gaming when it comes to showing off how much better each iteration of their trademark software is – and this year’s Parallels 15 proved no exception. After all, if you’re looking to play games on a Mac, Parallels is close to a must-have. And the new version of Parallels is the first to support both DirectX 9, 10 and 11 via Apple’s Metal API.

“Parallels made significant investments to support Apple Metal API, so today our customers can enjoy the fastest and most efficient version of Parallels Desktop to date,” said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Senior Vice President, Engineering and Support at Parallels.

As a result, Parallels say the new version of their dual-booting software is able to run many applications and games that didn’t work on previous versions. The company also claim that the new version of Parallels offers a more responsive UI, up to 15% faster 3D graphics performance and up to 80% faster Microsoft Office startup times.
