Speed up and optimization Android emulator with Intel HAXM

Peace be upon you and Hi!
Are you Android developers and use AVD emulator? Fed up with the activity speed during the emulation? With Intel HAXM, you can optimize the emulator speed if your computer have an Intel processor with support for Intel VT-x, EM64T and Execute Disable(XD) Bit functionality enabled.


To use Intel HAXM, open your “SDK Manager” and tick “Intel x86 emulator accelerator (HAXM) installer” and begin the download process. For Windows user, when the SDK manager completed the download, it does not mean HAXM are installed in your computer. You need to install it manually by opening “sdk\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager” directory and install it by your self.

For Linux users, you can follow official guidelines from Intel website HERE, Windows user also encourage to read that link on how to create AVD that use HAXM features. Cheers!
