"Your CPU does not support required features (VT-x or SVM)". How can I run the emulator with an AMD CPU PC?
After setting up and running the Android Studio program I came to find out that I need an Intel CPU to enable the HAXM, but since I have an AMD CPU I got the following prompt: "Your CPU does not support required features (VT-x or SVM)". My question is, How can I run the emulator with an AMD CPU PC? What are my options at this point?
Thanks a bunch!

If you have an AMD CPU, you'll have to use one of the arm images instead of an x86. You can also try out the 3rd party emulator Genymotion.
