Android emulator: AMD processor and Hyper-V support

Making the Android Emulator faster is one of the top priorities for the Android Studio team. Over the last few releases, we have launched quick boot [https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2017/12/quick-boot-top-features-in-android.html] & emulator snapshots [https://developer.android.com/studio/run/emulator#snapshots] for quickly starting and resuming emulator sessions in under 2 seconds. Up until now, our emulator experience has almost universally worked on macOS and Linux computers. But for users of Microsoft Windows or the Microsoft Hyper-V platform, our hardware accelerated speed enhancements for the Android Emulator only worked with computers with Intel processors. Support for AMD processors and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor are two long-standing user requests from the Android developer community that we are happy to address with this Android Emulator update [https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2018/07/android-emulator-amd-processor-hyper-v.html].

Welcome addition with the recent popularity of AMD Zen-based processors.
