A pair of Apple iPad mini tablets have been the top contenders for Best Box vs. Tablet in the Best Apple iPad Box vs Apple iPad Tablet battle for 2017, but it’s a battle between Amazon Fire Box and Amazon AirTV Box that looks to have the edge.
While the two Apple iPads are clearly the more expensive devices, Amazon has made a strong case for the AirTV box, and the Air TV Box is the winner here, according to the Geekbench benchmark results, with Amazon having a solid lead with the iPad Mini.
The Amazon FireTV Box and the Amazon Air TV box have both been tested in Geekbench’s latest iOS 10 benchmarking app.
In this case, the Air tv box was tested with a 3GHz ARM Cortex-A57 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, 32GB of storage and a 1.5GHz ARM-based Cortex-M3 processor.
The Air TV was tested using an 8GB RAM and 512GB RAM model with a 2GHz ARM CPU and 8GB storage, while the FireTV box was using an 2GHz Cortex-W53 CPU, 64GB of memory and 256GB of internal storage.
While we don’t expect the Airtv box to win the hardware battle in 2017, it seems that the Airbox has a pretty strong hardware advantage in terms of processor, memory and storage compared to the Fire TV.
In this case though, the Firebox won in the performance category, as it outperformed the iPad mini in terms.
It also beats the iPad minis performance in GeekBench’s GPU benchmarking benchmark.
The Fire TV is also the winner in GeekScore’s Android benchmarking, with a score of 6.0 out of 10.
