Huge performance drop via parallels with overpowered MacBook compared to Windows machine - Any special settings for Parallels?
I want start using my M1 Macbook Pro 14” over my Dell laptop, but I'm experiencing a big drop in performance, while the MacBook should be a lot more powerfull. Are there any special settings to run Mendix on macOS – and Mendix only? Hardware context: MacBook Pro 2021 14” M1 Pro (8C CPU, 14C GPU, 16GB Ram, macOS 13 Ventura, Parallels 18.1, Configured VM to 6-core/8GB Ram – Full clean OS (installed Parallels and VM yesterday) Dell Precision 3561, Intel i7 11850 8-Core @ 2.5Ghz, 16GB Ram Mendix 9.12.5 project – Will upgrade to 18.2 today. When doing a simple comparison, running a large Mx app from fully stopped state to running: 84 modules, 2800 microflows, 430 pages Windows machine 63 seconds MacBook with Parallels 150 seconds (2,5x as long). Since my day-to-day job involves 90% Mendix development, these delays can really take up a lot of time. With these numbers I have to revert back to Windows, as using macOS is a preference, not a necessity. Therefor I was wondering if there were any special settings to use/try to improve performance in running Mendix on a MacBook (including using different Virtualisation software, such as VMWare Fusion (haven't tried)).
We all are waiting for native MacOS Studio Pro. No other solution now really… Keep in mind that there is a big improvement between 9.12 and 9.18 regarding M1 cpus… Anyway I bet Intel and Windows still will win in your case.
