FPS counter can be useful to have in-game. They can help you see whether your game is running smoothly or you are experiencing unusual FPS drops.
All in all, they’re a great tool to have if you want to troubleshoot and tweak your settings to have smoother gameplay, and ultimately be a better player.
Is There an FPS Counter in Cyberpunk 2077?
Unfortunately, there is no option inside Cyberpunk 2077 to enable your FPS to show. Despite what you might think, it is rarely common these days to see FPS counters implemented in the game itself.
The games that have FPS counters are usually games that players success heavily relies on having a good and smooth gameplay. Also, developers are aware that most enthusiasts use more complex software like MSI Afterburner, so they don’t bother with implementing such features.
How to Show FPS Counter in Cyberpunk 2077?
There are a couple of ways to do this. Several companies solely focus on software such as this, and those counters usually have more features like GPU, CPU utilization, temperatures, and so much more.
In light of this fact, and considering how complicated those third-party programs can get, I will show you a simple FPS counter:
Simple Steam FPS Counter
- Open your Steam application.
- Click on Steam in the top-left corner.
- Go to your Settings.
- Then, click “In-Game”.
- There should be an “In-Game FPS Counter” here, select and position it wherever you want. Also make sure high contrast color is selected.
This will work in all Steam games, not just Cyberpunk 2077. So, it is a pretty good feature to have. Additionally, it might not work if your Steam overlay is disabled, so make sure you enable it.
If you want more complex GPU and CPU statistics, then you should consider getting MSI Afterburner, as well as RivaTuner Statistics Server.
This might be a lot more complicated to set up, but it will provide you with information that Steam isn’t able to. Be careful whether MSI Afterburner is supported on your system though!
