Hey guys I'm looking for a fast, reliable android emulator for pc that can run on my specs;
CPU: AMD A6-5400k
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7540d
RAM: 2gb (1.5gb usable)

I tried bluestacks and nox. Bluestacks' engine won't start, Nox' stuck at 99%.
Thanks!

I use the one shipped with Android Studio, you can use it with the command line to make it lighter...

Nevertheless, you have a pretty weak machine for emulation, you'll probably be scraping the maximum RAM just by running your Windows/Linux system, so any other OS will laggy af.

Probably the best option is to get more RAM.

If you're wanting to play android games on your PC, then the Android Studio emulator won't do.

I'm running BlueStacks and Nox on my AMD Phenom II X3 720BE (I have the 4th core unlocked). It's OC'd to 3.2ghz (from it's default 2.8ghz) and I was able to run BlueStacks VERY smoothly whether I was at 2.8ghz or 3.2ghz.

My GPU is an nVidia GeForce GTX 560. I think what's hurting you is the 2-core.

You need to remember. The emulator has to use your resources to emulate whatever it is emulating in addition to running the software.
