GLXOSD Alternatives

GLXOSD is described as 'on-screen display (OSD)/overlay for OpenGL applications running on Linux with X11. It can show FPS, the temperature of your CPU, and if you have an NVIDIA graphics card (with proprietary drivers), it will also show the temperature of the GPU' and is a system information utility in the os & utilities category. There are eight alternatives to GLXOSD for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Wine, Steam and Mono. The best alternative is Open Hardware Monitor, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like GLXOSD are MSI Afterburner, MangoHUD, RivaTuner and GOverlay.

GLXOSD alternatives are mainly System Information Utilities but may also be Screen Recorders or Screenshot Capture Tools. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of GLXOSD.
