NVIDIA created Frame Capture Analysis Tool (FCAT) to accurately analyze GPU performance and quantify smoothness by identifying issues that simple frame-counters can miss. FCAT is able to identify dropped frames, runt frames, micro-stutter and other problems that reduce the visible smoothness of the action displayed, even when FRAPS reports a high framerate. With the help of FCAT, GeForce is able to build better GPU technology and drivers that deliver faster and smoother graphics and improve PC gaming.
