A new Kindle Fire HD tablet may be on the way, at least according to new benchmarks found online.

Specs from GFXBench specifically point to an Amazon tablet with a 2,560x1,600 pixel display. A further peek reveals a Qualcomm Adreno 330 graphics processor, which almost certainly means the device will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chip.

The specs line up with information recently obtained by blog site Boy Genius Report.

Citing intel from "multiple trusted sources," BGR said that Amazon will refresh all three models of its Kindle Fire tablet lineup this fall. The 8.9-inch version of the Fire HD will offer a resolution of 2,560x1,600 pixels and come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, according to the sources.
