    I've always used Afterburner for FPS monitoring in games, but recently I'd been noticing game reviews featuring a unrecognizable in-game performance overlay, but I couldn't figure out what it was. Fast forward and I tracked it down to "FPS Monitor" and I thought it's worthy of a heads-up here. I've used it a couple days and it's already far more insightful than the metrics available from Afterburner, and it's way more customizable -- FPS, frametime, network traffic, SSD drive temp, basically anything. It comes with a layout editor. Enjoy.

    Great, a tool that will enable more bickering about "optimization" this and "port" that...

    Is it worth the $9.95 nondemo price?

    Thank you for the pleasant feedback about our app, we continue to work on it every day. By the way, FPS Monitor can be used absolutely free, there are no restrictions on the functionality, but we will be very grateful for your support, this allows us to spend more time developing our software and motivates much. Happy to answer ur questions.

    Michael, FPS Monitor dev.

    Can you "undock" portions to spread info around to the corners?

    Escape from Tarkov. It's a great idea of a game, but really buggy right now, at least when I played a couple months ago.

    Can you undock portions and move them around to the corners? CPU in one corner, ram in another, etc.?

    Of course, you can place sensors anywhere together or separately.

    Can’t speak for the dev, but surely you realize Gabe has to get his cut.

    I prefer to keep overlays off my games and on my phone as done with AMD.

    Nvidia should have something similar.

    Much better solution imho.

    Looks like a nice tool for reviewers. Even has averages listed for those games that don’t have built in benchmarking apps.

    Yeah it's pretty handy if you prefer not to have a overlay.

    I really like that. Too bad Nvidia doesn't have something like that.

    Definitely looks nicer than Afterburner.

    I just bought it, will test tomorrow.
