How to see frame rate per second (FPS) in GTA V?

Just like other PC games, there are plenty of options for displaying FPS when playing GTA V — without even having to install additional software.

One of the ways below you can follow!

#1 Windows 10 can display FPS in GTA V using Game Bar

Game Bar is a gaming feature in Windows 10 that can be used to display FPS in almost all games, including GTA V. Here’s how to activate it.

1. Press Windows+G on the keyboard to display the Game Bar like this.

To make FPS appear persistent (sticky), click pin icon. You can also adjust the size and position of the FPS column using the mouse cursor. For example, I placed it in the top left corner.

#2 Use Steam’s built-in FPS feature

Especially for those who bought GTA V on Steam, this launcher already has a built-in FPS counter that can be activated easily.

Based on my observations, FPS data from Razer Cortex is always significantly higher than Game Bar and Steam. I think the data generated by Razer Cortex is less reliable (at least as of this writing).


From the three options above, choose only one so they don’t overlap each other. I personally prefer Game Bar because it is a built-in program and is easy to customize.
