It's been a while since the last release but a nice update to the performance hud and benchmarking tool MangoHud is out now. This is the tool used for the performance stats on Steam Deck.
Something I'm a big fan of, because I use it plenty on desktop Linux too, it's one of the most useful open source projects for gaming. An example of a pretty basic layout for performance:
Version 0.6.9 brings these changes:
- Added support for it8603 sensor
- Conform to VUID-VkDeviceCreateInfo-pNext-00373
- Add GalaxyClient, RedLauncher, Amazon Games and gamescope to blacklist
- Add Artix and Nobara to build.sh
- Fixed a crash when using zink, and certain games using DXVK e.g. FarCry 3/4
- Fixed reporting amdgpu clock speed
- Fixed an issue with
execcausing certain games to crash
- Fixed incorrect metrics for ryzen 7000 series iGPUs
- Fixed discovery of wine binary when using wine64 build
There's also the addition of additional options to further tweak the experience how you want it:
exec_name- Display current exec name.
hud_compact- Display compact version of MangoHud.
hud_no_margin- Remove margins around MangoHud.
horizontal- Display Mangohud in a horizontal position.
toggle_hud_positionToggle MangoHud postion. Default is R_Shift + F11
fps_limit_methodIf FPS limiter should wait before or after presenting a frame. Choose
late(default) for the lowest latency or
earlyfor the smoothest frametimes.
picmipMip-map LoD bias. Negative values will increase texture sharpness (and aliasing). Positive values will increase texture blurriness (-16 to 16)
afAnisotropic filtering level. Improves sharpness of textures viewed at an angle (0 to 16)
bicubicForce bicubic filtering
trilinearForce trilinear filtering
retroDisables linear texture filtering. Makes textures look blocky
An example of a nice clean horizontal layout I tested today with Everspace 2:
