How to show your FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 in a few clicks




Cyberpunk 2077 had a rough release when it came out. The game was unplayable on old-gen consoles, like the Xbox One, and on next-gen consoles, such as the Xbox Series S and Series X, things weren't great either. Luckily, CD Projekt RED has been releasing updates to improve the game's performance. Now if you are testing these new updates on your PC, we are going to show you 4 ways of how you can display your FPS counter while playing the game.
