Kindle Fire Benchmarks - stock vs. CM7

Since ripping apart my Fire, literally, I was interested in comparing the performance of my Fire running CyanogenMod 7 versus the Kindle flavor of Android. To get a rough idea I used Quadrant Standard from the Google Market. Here are the results:

  • Stock Kindle Fire OS (6.2.1) – 1,951
  • CyanogenMod 7 (7.2.0-RC0) – 2,819

Here’s a picture of the Quadrant results under CM7 on a fire.


All-in-all, the Fire seems to respond more quickly and act snappier under CM7; of course, that’s just my subjective opinion.
