Dalvik Turbo


What is Dalvik Turbo?

Dalvik Turbo is a dynamic adaptive compiler technology for Android developed by The Myriad Group.  Dalvik Turbo provides a seamless replacement for the standard Dalvik Virtual Machine, the engine powering Android applications.
Dalvik Turbo increases the execution speed of applications developed using the Java programming language by up to five times. This is achieved through compiler bytecodes that implement advanced MIPS optimisation techniques inherited from Myriad’s Java virtual machine expertise.
Dalvik Turbo provides developers the tools to take full advantage of Android by enabling them to implement advanced graphics and complex models into their games while retaining full compatibility with existing software.  Dalvik Turbo is 100% compatible with Android bytecodes and therefore language independent.
