Boosting FPS can enable high-performance gaming. FPS, short for Frames Per Second, is used to measure the refresh frequency of the image on the screen. The higher the FPS value is, the smoother the video/image motion appears. For games fanciers, higher FPS enables the consecutive gaming display and lower FPS affects the experience and even triggers game crashes.
Most of the games can run properly if the computer FPS is between 30 and 60. The former is the baseline to enable game playability while the latter is for real-time or multiplayer games, like BioShock. 120 is an ideal FPS for some reaction-based games, like CS:GO. So to gain good gaming experience, it is important to boost FPS to over 30 or even 60.
