Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire Tablet Benchmarks (Page 2 – GeekBench)

By running the latest versions of the various benchmark suites, we can see that a number of devices are eliminated.  Effectively, if Amazon’s not updating the OS anymore (2013 and earlier, basically), some of the benchmarks aren’t going to run.

We start our benchmarking out with Geekbench.  Like all our tools, Geekbench is a cross-platform benchmarking tool.  Geekbench has a computing focus, so it mostly tells us about the CPU power, while our other benchmarks mostly tell us about GPU power.

Here we can see single and multi-core performance of various Fire platform devices.  In general, single core performance is most important for gaming.

Compute Benchmarks are only of of moderate interest on the Fire platform.  They tell us about GPU performance as it pertains to GPU compute applications.  While GPU is all the rage in a lot of areas, it’s not really pertinent to most Android devices, which offload this sort of workload to cloud computing resources (think Alexa, here).
