Well, if you are a gamer, then you probably know the importance of an FPS. FPS or Frames Per Second is linked to monitoring refresh rate during gameplays on computers, smartphones, and consoles. Games that run at high FPS will look smoother.

To monitor Frame rate, PC gamers often install third party applications. Currently, there are many FPS counters available for Windows that can display the FPS of games in real-time. However, third-party FPS monitoring tools have some drawbacks.
