Min/Avg/Max FPS in Doom

Is there an app that can record min/avg/max fps in Doom?
I know there is the built-in fps counter, but it doesn't give an average. Same with Steam's built-in counter. I tried Fraps, but it doesn't seem to want to record for me in Doom (2016).

  1. Pretty sure most FPS counters built into games DO show the average FPS. You're better off using one that shows Min FPS as well though, because low Minimums are often what causes big drops and stutter.

    Fraps is the only tool I know of that measures Min, Ave, and Max FPS, but you have to configure it to save a text file, and it will only show Ave FPS onscreen. It uses a bit more memory than RTSS though, which is the one I use.

    I would not advise buying Fraps as a capture tool though, it's a bit outdated and resource heavy. I'm pretty sure you can still use the free demo for FPS benching though.

  2. As I mentioned above, Fraps doesn't seem to work in Doom for me. It does not leave any results file in the benchmark folder.

  3. Yeah I just tried firing Doom 2016 up again, been a while since I played it. You're right, Fraps doesn't work at all with it (at least with Vulkan), and although the built in FPS counter can measure Min, Ave, and Max FPS when set to High, the Min, Ave, Max results shown in green text, are way lower than the actual.

    I can't see giving up the optimization of Vulkan if it's only broken on that API. If you're just wanting to monitor while choosing best settings, I suggest if you need to turning down Shadow Quality, Player Self Shadow, Decals, and Lighting, in that order.

    It can make a significant difference on FPS just going from Ultra to High on those settings, and there's marginal visual difference. On a 7970 I can run it with everything maxed except shadows at High and get 55-60 FPS with adaptive Vsync on, but with player shadow, decals and lights also set to High, I average 70-100 FPS.

    Here's a handy guide that shows the visual difference of all settings and their performance impact. https://www.tweaktown.com/guides/7757/doom-graphics-performance-tweak-guide/index.html

  4. I don't have any problem with the settings. I run it at Ultra/Vulkan/16xAF @ 1080p/60hz and mostly stay above 60 fps. I just wanted to have an app that recorded the min/avg/max fps so I don't have to watch the OSD all the time. But thanks. I'll just assume it can't be done.

  5. You could look at MSIAfterburner?

    As far as I know, it doesn't record min/avg/max fps. Just presents a display on screen real time.

    That would be correct, and I actually tested it myself just to see if it would facilitate what you're looking for. Which is why I said Fraps is the only one I know of that does, but unfortunately not with this game.
