Steam now has a built in frames per second (FPS) counter for those who have the Steam Client Beta. So players who have been using the FPS counter add-on can now switch over to the Steam counter.

The counter is now available in the client beta overlay and was part of the update released on January 2nd.  So players can now monitor framerate stats easily instead of using third party software.

Check out the rest of the fixes and tweaks added with the new update:

General
  • Reduced CPU usage when drawing animated images or videos.
  • Fixed video playback performance regression on Mac OS X and Linux.
  • Added FPS counter to Steam Overlay.
  • Fixed reloading settings values in the Steam Overlay.
Broadcast
  • Improved capture performance in D3D9 games.
  • Improved audio/video synchronization.
  • Improved automatically adjusting video encoding bit rate when a change in available upload bandwidth is detected.
  • Fixed opening the broadcast watch page from client UI (friends list, invite chat message, etc.) in the Steam Overlay.
  • Improved capture performance in OpenGL games when hardware support is enabled on machines with newer Nvidia GPUs.
  • Added first time use and other UI to Big Picture mode.
  • Fixed first friend invite to a broadcast sometimes getting dropped.
