    Is there any way to add custom polling period for a specific value.
    In MSI AB by default we have 1000ms hardware polling period z if i change it to 500ms the all values changes faster than before
    But i only want the FPS to change more frequent than others.
    So all other value 1000ms
    FPS 500ms
    How can we achieve that ?
    Please help...

    Have you tried changing the interval in RTSS instead of Afterburner? AFAIK, Afterburner polling interval affects sensors. FPS and frametimes are not sensors, and their display interval is configured in RTSS, not in Afterburner.

    I tried this at RTSS and its overlay editor also it didn't worked.
    But i know a clean format will solve this but sorry m just being curious to know what if i want to do the same with any other thing like gpu usage.!

    Thank You all, i didn't worked before but i tried multiple attempts and FPS is fine now. not as fast as Frametimes but its look legit.

    And one one more thing what if i wanted to do the same with gpu usage inside Msi Afterburner.
    Or any individual value can be adjust to custom polling rate?

    Afterburner polling rate minimum is 100ms I think. You can't go lower than that. Polling sensors has probably too much overhead.
