Is there a generic command for NVidia cards to show the current framerate while in a game?

More specifically, I'd like to use it on a GeForce 9400 GT in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, but it would be cool if there was a generic option.

Unfortunately there is no built in generic command to show FPS for Nvidia cards.

Your best bet would be to either use a tool such as Fraps, or enter a console command in the specific game that will display your FPS. the latter option will consume less resources but isn't available in all games.
