List of Xbox FPS Boost games on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

Xbox FPS Boost allows select backward-compatible Xbox games to run at double or even quadruple the original framerate without any developer input. So games you remember running at 30fps can now hit the heady heights of 60fps or even 120fps to make for an even better experience. 

This feature is only available on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, so if you're still using a last-gen console, we've got bad news, just because it requires the vastly increased CPU power of these newer platforms to run the games at a higher framerate.

We've assembled the complete list of titles applicable to this feature and details on what framerate the games used to run at, how they run now, and any other particulars worth noting. It's worth noting that some Xbox FPS Boost games are considered some of the best Xbox Game Pass games, so it's worth taking a look.

List of Xbox FPS Boost games

Xbox FPS Boost doesn't require any developer input but it is subject to certain restrictions. Some games might only be patched on one platform since a backward compatible Xbox One X version could already be running a game at 60fps. Other games might be very demanding and require the settings to drop down to the Xbox One or Xbox One S version of a game before increasing the framerate.

Just be aware that Microsoft has now finished updating older games through FPS Boost, so don't expect any further additions to this list. Still, if you've ever wanted to revisit a game but couldn't bear to play it at 30fps, then, check out the full list of FPS Boost-supported games below.

How do I use Xbox FPS Boost?

In order to take advantage of this framerate-boosting feature, you'll just need to play the games on your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. It'll automatically be enabled as long as your console has the latest updates. 

To verify a game is running with FPS Boost, you can press the Xbox button on your controller to check for the FPS Boost and/or Auto HDR labels. Some games have FPS Boost turned off by default, but it can be easily turned on under the Compatibility Options in the Manage game and add-ons setting.

Do note that in order to enjoy a game at 120 FPS on Xbox Series X or S, you'll want to make sure you have one of the best 120Hz TVs available. You'll also need to enable 120Hz on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc
