From what you are saying, I think you don't understand frame time/latency testing.
It's literally the same data as FPS. The major difference is that FPS averages the frame times over a given second, which hides when things are both going good and bad. Looking at all of the data rather than a group of averages allows for better assessing true performance.
It's the *same* data, just more accurate. It's not a different set of data that shows different things. It more accurately shows the same things.
