Have a love of graphs? You will like the latest release of the Linux gaming overlay and benchmark tool MangoHud, as it’s giving you even more details and control.
MangoHud is a a Vulkan and OpenGL overlay for monitoring FPS, temperatures, CPU/GPU load and quite a lot more. It’s quickly become the go-to for displaying and monitoring almost anything you need for Linux gaming and the 0.6.0 / 0.6.1 release that just went out has expanded what it can do even further.
One of the major new features is the ability to reorder the HUD so you can have it in whatever order you like. So if you want the FPS and frame timing info first before your system readout, you can do that.

There’s also a lot more graph options. You can add multiple graphs now to show things like GPU / CPU load, GPU / CPU temperature, RAM and VRAM use and more. The FPS limiting feature can now take multiple values, so you could have a hotkey to switch between values and there’s also various bug fixes with it now working with more OpenGL games like Black Ice, Total War: MEDIEVAL II, Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition and Mount & Blade: Warband.
Absolutely fantastic work, a great piece of FOSS tech.
