I've recently started using Parallels 7 and tested out some games with it. So far I've found stuff up to year 2006 (just prior to everything going widescreen HD resolutions) seems to work fine, an example being Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter which was released in 2006. My system is a 27" iMac, i5 3.1 CPU, 6970 GPU, 12 gigs RAM. The Parallels VM I setup is running Windows XP SP3 with all the RAM it can use and 1 gig ram allocated for the video card. I am wondering how much I can get away with with this setup before performance becomes too much of an issue and I need to resort to bootcamp. So far, I figured games from 2006 and earlier can be expected to work great and so far that's been true. But now I am wondering about how new I can go before I need bootcamp. So what about games from 2007? Anyone have any experience running these with Parallels 7: Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Two Worlds, Jade Empire, STALKER, Bioshock, Call of Juarez, C&C 3? What about stuff from 2008 like: C&C RA3, Vegas 2, Crysis, Dead Space, Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, Mass Effect? And lastly, how about stuff from 2009 like: Fallout 3 GoTY, Risen, Batman Arkham Asylum, Resident Evil 5, FEAR 2, CoD MW 2, Dawn of War II? I'd be very surprised if you can actually get away with decent performance with all the stuff above but I am very curious about how other people have made out with Parallels 7 running Windows games on the Mac. I am assuming that from 2010 and newer it is just too demanding but maybe I am wrong? I don't think my hardware has the horsepower to run stuff that new in Parallels. Anyway, even just to run all my old stuff without ever needing to reboot I find it very nice to have and it seems to work consistently well. Any feedback about your experiences would be most welcome!
