Rejoice, The Steam Client Beta Has Added A Framerate Counter

Recommended Videos

This past weekend, a Steam Client Beta update finally added a feature that a number of PC gamers will undoubtedly find useful—a framerate counter overlay.


Prior to the update, one had to use third-party software such as FRAPS or another tool to check what framerate your games were running at. Thankfully, this won’t be an issue any longer and it should make tweaking game settings a much smoother experience.


Other features added include improved capture performance for streaming D3D9 games, improved automatic adjustment of video encoding bitrate when a change in upload bandwidth is detected, and more.
