VALORANT PC Requirements

VALORANT PC Requirements
Microsoft Windows / Riot Games

The new competitive first-person shooter from Riot Games is set to launch this summer. We already got a good look at some of the VALORANT Agents. As a die-hard FPS player, I can honestly say I’m looking forward to this one. There hasn’t been a competitive shooter that hit the spot since the early days of Counter-Strike.

One of the selling points for VALORANT is that people who want to play the game won’t need any high-end hardware to do so. The game is already optimized to run on mid-tier PCs, and that’s just one reason why this game might flourish. Here’s a look at the recommended VALORANT PC requirements.

VALORANT PC Requirements

  • Windows 7/8/10 64 bit
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1GB VRAM

LOW-END PC SPECIFICATIONS (~30 FPS)

These are the requirements to run the game at 30 frames-per-second. You can probably run this game on the old laptop you have laying around in the garage.

  • CPU: Intel i3-370M
  • GPU: Intel HD 3000

RECOMMENDED PC SPECIFICATIONS (~60 FPS)

To run VALORANT at 60 FPS, you’ll need something mediocre. A cheap gaming rig will do fine, and running at 60 frames won’t really put you at a disadvantage in terms of aiming.

  • CPU: Intel i3-4150
  • GPU: GeForce GT 730

HIGH-END PC SPECIFICATIONS (144+ FPS)

These are the PC specifications you want to have (at least) if you’re planning on playing VALORANT hardcore. Assuming you have at least a 144hz monitor, you’ll be hitting 144 frames-per-second with no problem whatsoever. In terms of high-end computers, these VALORANT PC requirements really aren’t that demanding at all.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz
  • GPU: GTX 1050 Ti

For those gamers really looking to gain an edge on the competition wherever possible, you should know that as long as you’re running a modern GPU, performance will be bound by CPU. You will want to pay attention to the “single thread” rating of the CPU on Passmark.
