Kindle Fire HDX Processing Power

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX tablets deliver triple the processing power of the previous Fire HD tablet with their 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processors, and double the memory. The Kindle Fire HDX also runs "Mojito," the 3.0 release of Amazon's customized Android-based Fire OS.
