Avada is created with both speed and performance in mind. On it’s own, Avada is highly optimized and provides you with the ability to get good speed test scores on most tools like GTMetrix, Google PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom, and Web Page Speed Test. Having said this, your site’s speed and performance does not entirely rely on the theme and what you put into it also has a great impact on your speed scores.

When it comes to site optimization, Avada plays a much smaller part than you might imagine. Avada is optimized so that it’s fast on it’s own, but ultimately, user content will primarily dictate how fast your site will perform. Images play a huge factor in speed results, as well as hosting, server, extra plugins, content and more.
For example, if you have a site that’s 1100px wide and upload a 2000px image on a page, your page speed score will drop heavily. This is because sites like Google or GTMetrix will see a 1100px container that unnecessarily has an image in it that is almost twice its size.
