Frames Per Second

Frames Per Second or FPS is the rate the graphics processor renders new frames, or full screens of pixels. FPS decreases as the number of objects in a display increases, since it takes longer to draw each frame. A faster or more efficient gaphics processor will render more frames per second with more and more detailed displays. Higher FPS makes everything flow more fluidly, and makes the system more responsive to user input.
