* I/O boost is supported on macOS 10.14.5 and later.

** Always disable the feature for Intel-based VMs running the respective macOS version.

*** By default, GPU passthrough is disabled for VM configurations and VMs. When you enable GPU passthrough for an Intel VM, this automatically disables VNC for the VM. Make sure that you will be able to access the VM by SSH or Apple Screen Sharing before enabling GPU passthrough.
