#androidprotip : Configuring an AVD to use graphics acceleration

You need Android SDK Tools rev 17 or higher, then start by creating a new AVD with the target value of Android 4.0.3 (API Level 15), using SDK rev 3 and System Image rev 2 (or higher).

If you want to have graphics acceleration enabled by default for this AVD, in the Hardware section of the AVD configuration, click New, select GPU emulation and set the value to Yes.

You need to make sure to hit enter when you change the value in the list before closing the dialog.

You can also turn on graphics acceleration at run time:
emulator -avd <avd_name> -gpu on
