VMware adds support for Apple silicon to desktop hypervisor • The Register


VMware has updated its desktop hypervisors, adding native support for Apple’s Arm-based CPUs and Windows 11.

The virtualization giant offers three desktop hypervisors: Workstation and Player for x86 computers and Fusion for macOS. Workstation and Player have reached version 17 and Fusion is at version 13.

The big complement to both is a Virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM) – an essential requirement for running Windows 11 as a guest operating system.

VMware’s product line manager for desktop hypervisors, Michael Roy, explained that the TPM relies on a “fast encryption option” for VMs that “encrypts only the parts of the VM necessary to support the TPM device, making it efficient while at the same time guaranteeing safety”.
