This is a great asset, also the performance you can achieve on a computer with some power.
BluesTacks has officially announced its update number 5, currently in beta. It is a great leap in the performance and efficiency of the emulator, as the creators say: BlueStacks 5 increases performance by 40%, decreases RAM consumption by 40%, allows greater multitasking with several Android apps at the same time, the security and privacy of the emulator has been extended and the startup of the whole set is also faster, both from the emulator itself and from the emulated applications.
