    It's skipping the performance of the computer into account

    So you're getting eleven frames per second
    .
    If you set it to 0, you will skip no frames, but it will be much slower. This also depends on the game you are playing.

    For example, there are several games that need to have the frames set to 0 to make it look much better
    .
    And there are games that you have to set to 1, for example, the Castlevania games are best played with frame skips at 1.

    But if we set it to 200%, you will notice that the game is much faster, but the sound is choppy

    So you have to set all the settings according to your preference and bear in mind that every game will have its own settings here
