List of games with built-in benchmarks and in-game framerate tracking

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This is a list to show games that support benchmarks and framerate tracking internally without the use of external tools. Steam overlay and other external benchmark tools do not count for this list. Whilst there are an abundance of performance tracking tools on Windows and Linux, there are no tools that currently track game performance on Windows ARM or macOS. Furthermore many games do not support third party overlays if they are run through Wine or on a virtual machine.

Useful resources:

Notes:

  • Leave basic instructions in each field
  • {{Key}} template in order to annotate key combinations.
  • Use → to indicate menu steps e.g. Main menu → Options → Display settings
  • If there is more than one method separate using the word 'or'
  • If there is no benchmark/FPS option, simply leave the field empty
