To date, the numbers Highest FPS what PC can achieve is 240Hz. With this FPS level, of course you can find character movements that are so natural like objects real like humans.

Now, difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS you can see in the picture above. When the car makes a turn, the game with 30 FPS displays a beautiful picture blur. Meanwhile, in games with 60 FPS, the image is more stable despite a lot of movement.

This can be referred to as motion blur. Simply put, motion blur is the loss of detail when we see something that is moving very fast. This is because our eyes only have a limited focus area.

Motion blur appears because we see a set of images that are displayed in a short time. In 30 FPS games, fewer images are displayed every second than in 60 FPS games. When there is fast movement, a small number of frames is not enough to create a picture that is smooth, then arise blur the.

Today, most smartphones have screens based on 60Hz. This means that the device can run games at up to 60 FPS if supported by an adequate chip.

To find out how much FPS is good for a game, you have to know the comparison of each FPS and the graphics it will produce. Here's the explanation.

  • <15 - Can't play: If the PC you are using can only display images of less than 15 FPS, then the device cannot be used to play because the minimum specification for the game is 30 FPS.

  • 15-30 - Almost able to play: You can only play certain games, especially the very light ones.

  • 30-45 - Enough: You can play games with pretty good graphics. However, if a game requires an FPS level higher than 45, then you cannot play the game.

  • 45-60 - Comfortable: You can play games comfortably because you can enjoy the graphical display with Full HD resolution. This also applies to heavy games.

  • >60 - Very Comfortable: You will feel very comfortable when playing games because you can enjoy a very graphic display smooth. Heavy games like PUBG can also be played evenly.

If your video says 30fps, it means that there are 30 images that make up the motion in the video in 1 second.

Meanwhile, if your video says 60fps, it means that there are 60 images that make up the motion in the video in 1 second.

From Jaka's explanation above, you can see that FPS stands for frames per second and is the number of images displayed per second. The higher the FPS rate, the smoother the motion in the image will be.

You could say 60 FPS is good for use in games because it is able to provide a comfortable graphic display for our eyes. Higher FPS will give a much better view smooth, but this must also be supported by adequate tools.
