Only a few topics provide as much among computer gamers as the necessary FPS number. But when does a game really run smoothly? We give you some guidelines that you can follow.

The unit: What's behind the FPS?

The abbreviation FPS stands for "frames per second" and is originally from the film and video technology. Nowadays, the term is used for all digital displays.

  • The FPS number is the number of changing frames that are projected onto the screen within one second.
  • The higher the value, the smoother the game or movie is. From a certain value, however, no difference can be determined.

In computer games: How much FPS are needed for fluid animation?

The FPS games plays a special role in computer games: If the value is too low, the game begins to jerk. On the other hand, if it is so high that the human eye can no longer detect any difference, you waste valuable resources.

  • The human eye perceives about 20 to 24 frames per second. For example, this frame rate is sufficient for movies to interpret as fluid.
  • In this calculation, however, the time intervals between the individual images play a decisive role: If they are always the same - as in the case of a film - there are no problems whatsoever. If, on the other hand, the images are projected at different speeds on the screen, they often perceive these breaks as stuttering. The latter is the case with every computer game, since every single picture has to be calculated first.
