AMD and BlueStacks Partnership to bring Android to Windows PC's

8th January 2014
AMD have announced that their joint venture with BlueStacks will be bringing the Google Android OS to Microsoft Windows based systems. These include Desktop PC's as well as tablets, 2-in-1s and notebooks.

This dream is set to become a reality due to optimizations in AMD's latest APU's and we will soon be seeing Android Apps on more than just our smartphones and tablets.

New Version
New features now in the offing with the latest version of BlueStacks running on a Windows PC powered by a fourth generation AMD APU are.
  • A customizable and configurable Android user interface.
  • The ability to run Android Apps full screen or windowed and use the graphics processing power of the APU.
  • Synchronization of Apps across multiple devices and support being extended to thousands of downloadable Apps.
  • Direct File Sharing that will allow Android Apps to use files stored on the Windows file system as well as its own.

Simultaneous OS Support
The highlight of this new venture is the ability to use both Operating Systems simultaneously, gone will be the days when you have to power off your PC to boot to another OS. With the file sharing options also available it will remain to be seen whether Bluestacks will eventually be viewed as an add on to Windows or Vice Versa.

Rosen Sharma, CEO of BlueStacks said “We’re working with AMD to build the next great PC and AMD’s industry-leading hardware allows for a more flexible experience with Android apps on the PC for end-users. AMD shares our vision of Mobile Plus in providing users with easy access to their favourite Android games, mobile apps and productivity tools from all their devices and moving towards a more open/shared ecosystem.”

AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) are a Processor Design and Manufacturing company, they are most well known for their ranges of Desktop PC Processors but also supply Mobile and Server Processors. The latter being primarily for cloud computing and virtualization environments. AMD devices are used everywhere from the smallest PC to state of the art Super Computers. Their purchase of ATI in 2006 has led to AMD developing CPU's that not only do normal processing functions but also graphics processing functions within a single chip.
