Knowing the number of FPS at which our games are running allows us to know if we have established a good configuration or if, on the contrary, we are abusing some parameter to improve the graphic quality, a parameter that overloads the card and makes the game crash. run slower.

Ideal FPS to play

When we look for an ideal number of frames to enjoy our favorite games, we must from a minimum of 30 as long as they are stable, that is to say, that they neither go up nor go down, since this change produces cuts in the image and lagueos. While it is true that most games include an FPS cutoff, especially shooter games, not all of them have this option in sight.

Other titles do not even offer this function, so we are forced to use the launcher where the game is available, be it Steam, Epic Games or any other to add that information on the screen. Since each launcher provides this information in a different way, we cannot know where it is located on each platform.

Windows includes a large number of native functions that very few people use and one of these is the one offered by the Game Bar, the Windows game bar that allows us to record games, take screenshots, know the performance of the PC, the resource consumption in addition to the number of frames at which the game runs. Knowing this value, we can quickly know if we should make any changes in the configuration of the game’s graphic options to get a stable number of FPS and avoid that this varies depending on what is being displayed on the screen.

Show the FPS of a game on the screen

To use the native Windows tool to show the number of FPS displayed on the screen, we must use the Game Bar, an application that we can open from any application or game that we have open at that moment through the key combination Win + G. The Performance panel, which is displayed in the lower left corner of the panel, shows us the consumption of the processor and the graphics card, together with the consumption of RAM memory and the number of photos per second.

FPS counter in game

If we want that panel to be shown superimposed on the game that we have open, we just have to click on the thumbtack located in the upper right corner of that window to fix it. In addition, we can also change its position so that it does not interfere with the image of the game.
