Apple M1, AMD eGPU and Parallels Desktop 16: does it work as a bootcamp replacement?
Since the new M1 (and the upcoming M1X) chips are blazingly fast, but don't support Windows 10 via Bootcamp anymore... has anybody seriously tried to use Parallels Desktop 16 as a bootcamp replacement with an eGPU so far?
From what they advertise it should be running just fine: https://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/
For example, how do stability and performance with a Radeon 5700 XT compare between native bootcamp and Parallels Desktop 16 in macOS?
Indeed, there's not eGPU support on M1 Macs, also read that in the meanwhile. Still hope it will be added soon.
And for Intel-based Macs there is eGPU support, but there still is bootcamp as well... So that pretty much concludes this thread already.
Virtualization will never ever be a native OS replacement with current technologies. Don't bother questioning or asking this in foreseeable the future, it will never happen. Maybe 20 years from now or something crazy like that, but we're nowhere near that point.
