    Do any of you know if the CD Mini can benefit from the 3D support in the upcoming 3.0 version of Parallels?

    It should? bc it would now benefit for harware rendering instead of software rendering with 3D models etc. The mini still has integrated graphics which are kindad boring.

    It will. Just because the mini has a relatively weak graphics chipset (integrated or otherwise), it is still a 3d capable "card" under windows. Even does aero glass under Vista. If you're into that sort of thing.

    Chances are any games that are playable under virtualization are going to be older anyways, likely only DirectX 8 capable or earlier.
