16:00, 02 Mar 2020

Riot Games’ upcoming FPS title Valorant is being geared for high-end performance, with 128-tick servers, proprietary anti-cheat prevention, and detection, and a custom-built net code for precise hit registration. There’ll be no lagging here if Riot Games (and your internet connection) can help it.

When Valorant releases its open beta (which you can learn about how to sign up for here), it’s going to be imperative that your PC can handle the high-performing game, which will need a lot of processing power, as well as a pretty good graphics card. 

Below you’ll find all specifications from minimum to high-end;

Minimum Specs - 30fps

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

Recommended Specs - 60fps

  • CPU: Intel i3-4150
  • GPU: Geforce GT730

High-end Specs - 144+fps

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

PC Hardware Recommendations:

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

To put it simply, if you play Overwatch on your PC; you’ll be able to play this smoothly enough, as both require 4GB RAM and Intel Core i3 as a minimum. 

If your PC doesn't seem like it'll be up to par, it’s time to upgrade before the Valorant open beta drops.
