Can You Play Fortnite on Amazon Fire Tablet? (7, 8, HD 10?)

If you are wondering if you can play Fortnite on Amazon Fire tablet the short answer is yes, you can. However, to be honest, it’s not the greatest tablet for this game, so if you’re only going to get it for that reason, there are other budget options such as TECLAST Tablet 7″ PRO with 8GB RAM or BlackView Gaming Tablet that are much better.

Fortnite minimal requirements

I bet you are wondering why it’s not the best fit? You are not the only one. Let’s start with Fortnite requirements that are following:

  • 64-bit Android on an ARM64 processor,
  • Android OS 8.0 or higher,
  • minimum 4GB of RAM,
  • GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher.

As you probably already know Amazon Fire tablet runs its own version of Android, which is known as Fire OS. If something smells like Android, looks like Android, and behaves like Android it simply means that… it is Android. Just to confirm – yes you can run Android apps on Fire OS. So we have the first two points checked. Now let’s jump to the next one.

RAM

Fortnite requires a minimum of 4GB RAM. That unfortunately only leaves us with the most recent version of the Fire Tablet which is Fire HD 10 (2021, 11th gen) as all the previous ones offered 2 to 3 GB of RAM.

The Fire HD 10 Tablet can be allocated up to 4GB of RAM, but remember that is not the recommended number for optimal performance. Playing Fortnite on this tablet is possible, but may result in not the best gaming experience.

GPU

As seen on the list above, in order to play Fortnite smoothly, it is recommended that your device have a Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher. The good news is that Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet comes with an ARM Mali-G72 GPU which will fulfill the requirements for this game.

Let’s wrap it up in a table:

How Does It Feel to Play Fortnite on Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet?

Glad you ask, you can watch the video below to see what you can expect:

Can You Play Fortnite on Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet or Kindle Fire HD?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. These tablets are pretty old and they don’t have enough RAM to run Fortnite.

My Final Thoughts

As you already know if you own or plan to get Amazon Fire HD 10 device you will be able to play Fortnite but it won’t be the best experience ever as it barely meets minimal requirements for the game.

I would say go for it if you are on a very tight budget however if you can spend a few bucks more then I would go for TECLAST Tablet 7″ PRO with 8GB RAM or BlackView Gaming Tablet that are just slightly more expensive but will deliver much better gaming quality.
