If you need apps/games run faster in emulator but the performance is not good in your low spec PC, then you can try Android OS instead of emulator. Android OS(s) are OS for PC that can be installed in PC(s) and use them like emulators. The different is that in emulator you can only have some resources left for android while installing Android in PC(s) gives Android full resources. That’s why emulator is slow. There are many Android OS. Some well known are Phoenix OS, Remix OS and Android-x86. You can try any of them in your PC.
