News Windows 11 on an M1 Mac? Here’s how it’s going to happen

Jul 15, 2021
Parallels uses hardware virtualization, or creating a virtual machine through software, to get Windows' X86 code to work on M1

Well that's completely incorrect. The M1 version of Parallels will ONLY run ARM based versions of Windows.

Windows ARM will emulate 32-bit x86 code, and if you're lucky that it works to any degree 64-bit. Sadly Microsoft dropped the ball vs Apple's Rosetta and its native x86_64 code translation/emulation.
