Windows 10 game bar update includes FPS counter in overlay

Windows 10 game bar now packs FPS counter and an overlay for achievement tracking

Microsoft has been making some great changes for gamers in Windows 10, and it looks like one of the best ones is now here -- an FPS counter built into the game bar.

The news broke with Mike Ybarra, the Corporate Vice President of Xbox Program Management, who tweeted the updated game bar with its FPS counter. The updated game bar will display real-time frames per second for your games, as well as an Achievements overlay.

Achievements in the overlay is a nice touch, a nice quality of life feature that will make keeping a tab on your achievements easier than going into a separate sub menu. I think the inclusion of an FPS counter is a much bigger deal, as more and more people like to keep a track of their in-game performance.
