HP Consumer PCs - Improving video game performance or FPS (Windows 10)

Learn more about what factors influence the way a video game is displayed on your computer, and how to improve performance.

What is FPS?

Frames Per Second (FPS) is a measurement of how many times the screen does a full refresh within a second. FPS is a fluid measurement that fluctuates based on rendering speed, image complexity, refresh rates, and more.

The following factors contribute to FPS:

  • Monitor limitations: The refresh rate of a monitor, measured in hertz (Hz), demonstrates the maximum number of cycles per second. 1Hz is equal to 1 FPS.

  • Tearing: The term tearing describes a visual artifact where the monitor shows information from different frames on a single screen.

  • Sync technologies: There are several sync technologies that fix tearing: V-sync, AMD Free-Sync, NVIDIA G-sync, and more. They all work differently to address the same problem. Check your hardware specs to see which technologies, if any, are compatible with your devices.

Measure FPS

You can monitor FPS through in-game resources or using available applications.

  • AMD RadeonPro: Systems using a supported AMD graphics card can use AMD RadeonPro to monitor FPS.

  • NVIDIA GeForce Experience: Systems using a supported NVIDIA graphics card can use GeForce Experience to monitor FPS.

  • In-game: Most games have an FPS monitoring system that can be turned on through the game menu.

  • Downloadable applications: There are a variety of software applications available to monitor FPS. See the technical specifications of your graphics card to check compatability.

Improve performance or FPS

You can improve performance or FPS by updating the BIOS or graphics driver, changing the graphic settings, turning on Game Mode, or plugging in the notebook PC.

  1. Press the Windows key + g to open the Game bar.

  2. Click the Settings icon on the Game bar.
