Microsoft’s latest offering is Windows 11, and Some people want it to use on their Mac. VMware’s Fusion tech preview comes with a new tech that allows Windows 11 Support on Mac with Intel and Apple Silicon. The latest version of VMWare Fusion 2H22 helps virtualize Windows 11 on Mac and even Linux.

VMWare uses the Virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to virtualize to support Windows 11 on Mac. They have developed the TPM with an auto-generation key stored in the keychain with fast encryptions. Windows offically doesn’t support M1 or M2 Chips.

Not to mention, performance is essential, and making fast encryptions helps to run the most critical part of the virtual machine. On top of this, there is 2D graphics support with a WDDM driver, which supports 4K.

Noteworthy, the vmxnet3 network driver is not available with the current build. However, there are graphic and network drivers available in the latest version. The vmxnet3 is a custom driver supporting highly efficient data transfer rates and performance improvements.

Although VMWare Fusion does not individually support Windows 11, there are more Operating system offerings. You can check out the latest version of the VMWare fusion tech on your Mac despite being powered by Intel or Apple’s silicon. However, you may find some difficulties and limitations, and it only supports M1 Virtual machines like MacBook Pro 14 and Macbook Pro 16.
