Intel HAXM (full name Intel® Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager) — a supervisor program that uses hardware virtualization to accelerate the emulation of 32-bit Android images.
As a rule, emulation of various operating systems, and, moreover, devices & mdash; a thing rather resource-intensive. In particular, this is the case with Android emulation on personal computers running Windows. The system will slow down, and even a small android application can take quite a long time to start.
You can use HAXM to slightly increase the speed of the system on some configurations. It is not an emulator in the full sense of the word, it is a kind of add-on for other emulators, expanding the possibilities of virtualization and making it possible to accelerate the work of existing 32-bit Android emulators.
The program will be useful for developers and anyone who wants to use a mobile operating system on a computer. With Intel HAXM, you can run multiple emulators with different versions of Android on the same computer. It does not consume much resources and automatically distributes them between running containers.
The program will only work on computers that support VT-x. The archive has a utility haxm_check.exe which you can use to find out if your system is suitable for installing the program.
- a hypervisor for Android;
- use of hardware virtualization;
- allows to run several emulators in one system;
- low pressure on resources;
- not bad performance;
- support for the latest versions of Android platforms and new APIs.
