macOS Big Sur VM is possible to enable GPU accelerator if it's running on Big Sur host.
VMware Tool 11.2 or later should be installed. And following two parameters should be updated in the .vmx file
appleGPU0.present = "TRUE"svga.present = "FALSE"
You can see the following in the system report after reboot the VM

Now, the question is how to increase VRAM size? Does anybody know?😀
