Android Emulator Update for AMD Users

Android Studio's Device Emulator, the indispensable platform for gaming and application developers, will be able to deliver higher performance with new supported AMD support.

Android Studio's device emulator, which is an indispensable feature for developers, was running extremely slowly even on computers with advanced features. Being aware of this, Google has managed to improve performance significantly in the last two years by reversing it, but a few problems are still happening. The Windows version of the Android Emulator is known to support HAXM (Hardware Assisted Virtualization Engine), which runs only on Intel processors. This means that AMD-powered computers can only use uninvolved ARM views.

After years of hard work on the subject, this shortcoming could finally be overcome. Google has added a new feature for VT-x hardware acceleration to AMD processors today using Microsoft Hyper-V for the new version of Android Emulator. In addition, Intel PCs will also support the emulator and this new feature will make HAXM the default utility.


            The Most Practical Way to Move Your Android Device to Your iOS Device Contacts

When you need Android Studio 3.2 Beta or higher to use the new emulator marketed on AMD processors, you need to get the emulator (available in Studio SDK Manager) V27.3.8. Another point to note is to manually enable Hyper-V, which requires Windows 10 with the April 2018 update.
