    FPS counter? This is really awesome for testing nine vs catalyst for games which don't have any benchmark mode!

      Big Picture

      It do not work in Big Picture mode. But its okay in all the games I tested. The counter is very small, located in the left high position of the screen. The font is the same size as web fonts. Discrete but effective.

      But is not a real time fps counter. It refreshes at 1Hz.

          The FPS counter is a nice new feature. Speaking of bug fixes, Slouken (Sam Lantinga) over at Valve recently fixed a bug that I reported a few beta releases ago. There was a bug that preventing In-Home Streaming from working on certain systems when hardware encoding is enabled on the server. Now it's working great for me:
