Released in the fall of 2013, the third generation of Amazon's Kindle Fire line comes in two models, a 7 inch and a 8.9 inch. A second generation of the Fire HDX 8.9-inch model featuring a faster processor and a more powerful graphics processing unit was released in September 2014. At at that same time, the name "Kindle" was removed from all of the Fire tablets' names.
