Over the past several weeks I have had the pleasure of testing and working with Parallels Desktop 6 for the mac. This new release not only improves performance, adds over 50 enhancements, but also offers critical new hardware support such as SATA drive emulation!
Some of the top features of this new release are:
35% Speed Improvement
80% Speed Improvement on 3D graphics
SATA Drive Support
5.1 Surround Sound Support
In my testing Parallels Desktop 6 continues to improve on an already stellar product through performance, enhanced PC Hardware support and ease of use. Parallels Desktop 6 not only sets the standards but with version 6 pushes the gap even further away from other virtualization solutions.
You can check out my new features screencast here and look for an review of 3D performance coming soon.
