There are a ton of blog posts comparing Avada to Divi, but none focus on performance. Because speed is essential for online stores, our comparison will focus solely on page load time.
The data below is from our yearly WooCommerce theme performance benchmark. We’ve created the test so that everyone can make an informed decision when choosing a theme. To see all the themes tested, the methodology, and full results, read the fastest WooCommerce theme.
The 2020/21 test was done in mid-December 2020.

Which theme should you choose?
If you’re interested only in performance, then the results are clear – Avada is 14% faster than Divi.
That said, Avada scored only 12th place (out of 20) on our benchmark test (Divi was 16th). If you’re looking for performance, neither of these two themes is a good option.
