Frame Per Second Test – Can You Tell The Difference?

Frames Per Second FPS

With all the talk nowadays about frame rate, we thought we’d test our community and see if they can really spot the difference between 30-60 fps. Admittedly browsers don’t support a full 60 fps so these images are 25 and 50 fps respectively, but it’s analogous to the 30-60 test. With the Playstation 4 and the next Xbox on the horizon we may see more 60 fps in the near future.


Thanks to Neogaf user Alo81 for the hard work. (Answer Below)



The image on the left has the higher frame rate, there’s more examples here. Did you get it right? Let us know in the comments section!

I split time between games journalism and making video games. My love of it’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), fitness and my family define me otherwise.
  • The left pic is a lot more smooth, you can totally see that its got more fps. It might not seem like a big difference, but thats because you are only watching a 1 second clip of movement. Competitive gamers (especially FPS) make sure the game runs at 100 fps or you are at a big disadvantage..

    The trail on the left sword is a lot smoother, but that’s really the only reason I can tell.
