AMD bringing dual OS solution to retail

Written by Fudzilla staff

BlueStacks to materialize soon

AMD’s partnership with BlueStacks was announced a while ago, but so far we haven’t seen any dual OS products with AMD silicon inside. Until now.

AMD announced the retail availability of a new BlueStacks dual-OS solution at MWC. The tech is optimised for AMD APUs and in theory it should allow low voltage APUs to be deployed in dual OS devices, namely tablets and 2-in-1s.

However, it may take a while.

“The availability in retail stores of the virtualized Android solution, unveiled at CES earlier this year, will allow consumers to easily access both Windows and Android environments, side-by-side, on select AMD-based PCs. The BlueStacks solution will first be made available with several key retail partners across EMEA later this year,” AMD said.

AMD VP Steve Belt pointed out that the ability to span two OS ecosystems will provide users with seamless integration of entertainment and productivity apps across both systems.

PC buyers will have the choice of an AMD-BlueStacks upgrade when buying an AMD-based PC at select retailers. Easy integration of BlueStacks for retail customers effectively bridges the divide between mobile and PC, and the retail solution requires no additional driver or extension support.

The solution also supports synchronization of both OS environments through BlueStack’s FoneLink service, which essentially allows AMD Windows devices to become an extension of Android mobile devices and vice versa.
