Frames Per Second (FPS)

What does this counter show?

This counter represents the average number of frames-per-second processed by the GPU over the selected period of time. This value is the reciprocal of the frame time (in seconds).

Similar to the frame time counter, this value is not calculated per CPU process. This counter represents the number of frames the GPU has been able to render within the selected period of time, regardless of which process submitted the rendering task.

On most platforms, V-sync will prevent the number of frames-per-second exceeding the refresh rate of the display.

What does a high value mean?

A high value indicates that the GPU has been able to process a high number of frames during the selected period of time, offering a smooth experience to the user.
