Owners of desktop or laptop PCs with AMD processors can now access Android applications thanks to a collaboration between AMD and BlueStacks. The result of this partnership is the AMD AppZone Player. The application can be downloaded free of charge from AMD.
BlueStacks is a company that is known for Android emulation on PCs. It created the BlueStacks App Player, and partnered with Asus to bring the technology into its pre-installed asus@vibe PC software. The difference between previous BlueStacks software and what AMD has come up with boils down to optimized performance.
AMD says its AMD AppZone Player has been optimized for AMD Radeon graphics and its OpenGL drivers. Theoretically, this results in applications that look as if they belong on larger screens with higher resolutions.
