The newer 7" Kindle Fire HD matches the Nexus 7's resolution and has an even better IPS display with not just sharp text but very good color calibration and gamut.

Benchmarks Real world tests of Slate 7 Extreme vs Nexus 7 II

geekbench Processor and memory performance

Processor and Memory: Some were quick to point out the Nexus 7’s not-so-cutting-edge quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which has been eclipsed by more recent entrants, but it’s nonetheless still able to give the tablet that sense of speed and snappiness with its performance.

Also armed with 2GB of RAM and the Adreno 320 GPU, its performance gallops at a pace that undoubtedly shows us that it’s still one powerful thing to contend with.

Infinity Blade on the iPad is approachable, additive, takes advantage of the iPad's GPU to produce gorgeous visuals, and above all, it's fun.
