How to show FPS in CS:GO: the best ways
How to show FPS in CS:GO: the best ways

In online shooters, it is essential to keep track of the frame rate. And CS:GO is no exception in this regard. If the FPS is low, the player will see the enemy a fraction of a second later than should, fraught with death. This article explains how to enable the FPS counter in CS GO in several different ways.

Show FPS via a standard console command in CS

There will be no difficulties with turning on the FPS counter in the CS using a standard command. For this method required:

  1. 1. Open the console directly in the game (the “~” button).
  2. 2. Enter there this combination of letters and numbers: net_graph 1.
  3. 3. Confirm the command by pressing Enter.

After that, a detailed summary of the current game session will appear at the bottom of the display (next to the ammo counter). Among other things, there will be shown the number of FPS and the current ping.

The advantage of the method is its simplicity. Disadvantage – a lot of superfluous things on the screen. When a particularly dynamic moment comes in the game, it can get in the way.

There is another command that can display information about the current FPS on the map. This is cl_showfps 1. It shows less information, and the data itself is not near the ammo counter but above the map. For many gamers, this is more convenient than the previous option.

How to turn on the FPS counter in CS GO using a standard Nvidia panel?

This method is suitable for those who use video adapters from “green”. It is straightforward, even easier than entering a console command. And most importantly, only FPS is displayed on the screen, and nothing else, so unnecessary information does not block the view.

To activate the option, you must:

  1. 1. Launch the CS:GO.
  2. 2. Press Alt + Z on the keyboard.
  3. 3. Click on the cogwheel (settings).
  4. 4. Select HUD.
  5. 5. Click “FPS Counter”.
  6. 6. Indicate its location on the screen.

After that, in the established place, numbers will appear that will display the current FPS. Thus, they are visible both directly during the game session and in the lobby.

Frame count data is shown in bold green numbers. Unfortunately, neither color nor thickness can be changed. So it would be best if you were prepared because, on some maps, the information will merge with the environment and be poorly read.

How to enable the FPS counter in CS:GO through standard Steam tools?

Few people know that you can activate the display of the frame rate in all games installed from the store in the Steam parameters. For this, you need:

  1. 1. Launch Steam.
  2. 2. Click on the name of the store in the left corner.
  3. 3. Click on “Settings”.
  4. 4. Find the “In-Game” tab.
  5. 5.In the window that appears, click on the “Display frame rate” block.
  6. 6. Select the location of the counter (one of the corners of the monitor).

The main advantage of the method is the ability to activate the FPS contrast display mode. You need to put a checkbox opposite the corresponding item next to the options block to enable it.

FAQ

Can the Nvidia panel provide information other than FPS?

Yes. For example, data about the status of a network connection.

Which command for the console more accurately shows FPS?

Obviously net_graph. When using showfps, the numbers often change a lot, which is not always true.

Does data output affect performance?

No, the FPS does not go low (regardless of the picture settings).
