MangoHud has firmly filled a hole in tools available for Linux gamers, benchmarking and more. A handy HUD that works across OpenGL and Vulkan games and a fresh build went up.

Allowing you to track FPS, frame timing, HDD read/write, benchmark, RAM and VRAM use, limit the FPS and so on. With the latest 0.3.5 release, what's possible with MangoHud has expanded further. It can now also show 32/64bit, the currently playing Spotify song, you can pick a specific GPU for multi-GPU setups and you can also now display the MangoHud version.

Other new features for this fantastic HUD include XNVctrl as a fallback for NVIDIA to allow older devices to view GPU load (and more), plus there's now a blacklist to prevent it trying to run on certain incompatible software (like game launchers) and a number of OpenGL related bug fixes.

You can pick up MangoHud from GitHub.

Or a flatpak. IIRC the developer is open for it. Might be wrong though!

There is a flatpak of mangohud
flatpak install com.valvesoftware.Steam.Utility.MangoHud

I believe a PPA is also in the works

Brilliant! Always thinking about the new users of Linux :)
