How to Enable FPS Boost in Xbox Series X|S
Many of you already know about the in-built “FPS Boost” feature available on Xbox Series X and Series S. This FPS boost feature can help you improve the performance in older games. However, the best part is the developer of that particular game doesn’t even require to do anything. So, turn on your console and then follow each point that we describe here. But, wait! Before that, let us first see what an FPS boost in Xbox series X|S is.
What Is FPS Boost on Xbox?
Frame per second is the rate at which any game runs. Previously, in the last generation’s devices, the big game’s frame rate is locked at 30. Now, why they did this? Well, they did this to ensure that players are less likely to encounter FPS drop while gaming. But, all the hardware limitations are removed in the new-generation consoles to ensure high FPS while gaming.
Meanwhile, now players have an overhead to run the games at a 60 FPS rate or even in some cases 120 FPS (if they have 120FPS supported Tv or monitor. If you are a hardcore gamer, then you already know how important it is to get high FPS while playing online-based games to have a plus point. But, the game developers need to update their game according to the higher FPS rate.
But, unfortunately, this is often not viable for older titles because developers have stopped working on them. However, that’s the main reason why Microsoft introduces an FPS boost method to improve gaming performance. This will allow users to boot the frame per second to double without any external software. This feature is recently launched in 2021 with support for a few titles, but I think they will increase the number of supported games in the near future.
How to Enable FPS Boost on Xbox
Well, the FPS Boost feature is not enabled by default. So yes, you need to enable it on your own for the title you are playing. Suppose a game is using FPS Boost, then you can notice an “FPS Boost” indicator in the screen located somewhere in the top right corner whenever you press the Xbox button.
You can check if a game uses (or can use) FPS Boost or not by following the steps given below.
