According to Sarah Perez of TechCrunch, BlueStacks, the startup that’s bringing Android applications to Mac and Windows computers, announced a partnership with chipmaker AMD, which will see its catalog of applications optimized for AMD-powered Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs.

While BlueStacks doesn’t discuss the terms of the deals it has with individual companies, it’s understood that some OEMs (BlueStacks has deals with Asus and ViewSonic already) may pay for the opportunity to integrate BlueStacks onto their PCs, as doing so allows the manufacturer to earn pay-per-install revenue.
