Delphi XE Android App Emulator Problem

I have recently been using Delphi XE5 do produce an Android mobile app. All was looking good until I wanted to run the app, the Android SDK comes with an Android emulator, but when I tried running the App from Delphi with the emulator running I just got a blank screen. When I plugged an Android device in it ran fine, so I thought it must be an issue with the emulator. After a few days of using the device I thought I would look into how to fix the emulator issue. All you need to do to fix this problem is to turn on the 'Use host GPU' option when setting up the device in the emulator, after that it will run, however there is another annoying issue, it is very slow.
