In this guide, I will be showing you how to show an FPS (Frames Per Second) counter in Diablo 4. It’s a good idea to know what frame rate you are getting, because if you are receiving a low FPS like 20, then Diablo 4 is going to run slowly.
So if you are getting a low FPS in Diablo 4 you will then need to lower your graphics to help improve the frames. If you are not using the max graphics settings then you might be able to increase the graphics settings if you are already getting a high FPS. And if you are able to use the maximum quality settings, then you are in for a treat because the game looks stunning!
There are a few different ways that you can display an FPS overlay in Diablo 4, I have listed these below.
What is an FPS counter?
An FPS counter also as Frames-Per-Second is an overlay that will display what frames you are currently getting within a program or game.
The counter is constantly kept up to date with the frames you are receiving allowing you to get an idea of how well your graphics card is currently performing.
Even if you have the world’s best graphics card you should still know what FPS you are getting in Diablo 4. The reason behind this as I have already mentioned above, once you know how well your GPU is performing you can then make changes to your graphics settings to either improve or reduce them.
What FPS should I be getting?
This will depend on your graphics card, in-game graphics settings, and the display that you are using. So it’s hard to say exactly what FPS you should be getting.
However, below is a list of what sort of Frames Per Second you will want to aim for in Diablo 4.
30 FPS: This really is pushing the lowest playable FPS in a game, if you were to go any lower than this number then the game would just be unplayable. So make sure your counter number is always above this number.
60 FPS: You are going to be able to have some fun playing with this frame rate, and seeing as you are getting this number suggests that you might also be able to reduce one or two of the in-game graphics settings, this will then increase the FPS in Diablo 4 even more.
100 FPS and over: If you are getting over 100 FPS while playing the game and that includes battling in a dungeon when things get a little wild, then this is a decent amount of frames per second. I personally try to always keep my games over 100FPS, even if it means sacrificing some in-game graphics quality to have a higher frame rate.
