Valorant System Requirements – Minimum, Recommended and High-End Specs

System requirements for the game Valorant are actually very low, and it means that that it can run on any PC today. Well, at least at the lowest settings. However, if you want to be, not just a casual player, but as competitive as possible, you still need a robust gaming machine. If you prefer laptops, you may want to check out this article, where I compiled the best gaming laptops for Valorant. Having one of the laptops mentioned, you can smoothly play Valorant up to 144 fps or higher on a 144Hz display for the best gaming experience possible. If you prefer a desktop PC, you may check it out the article, where I write about the best gaming desktop PCs for playing Valorant to be as competitive as possible.

Here you can see the difference from 1 up to 240 fps:

Minimum System Requirements (up to 30 fps)

  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
  • GRAPHICS: Intel HD 4000
  • MEMORY: 4GB

Processor
The Valorant minimum PC specs are really minimal. The Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 is a CPU from twelve years ago. It means almost anyone can run the game nowadays.

Graphics cards
The Valorant minimum spec GPU for up to 30 fps is an Intel HD 4000, an integrated graphics card included in the Ivy Bridge processors of 2012 (3rd generation of Intel Core). Any mobile processor from 2013 onwards should do the job.

Recommended System Requirements (up to 60 fps)

  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-4150
  • GRAPHICS: Nvidia Geforce GT 730
  • MEMORY: 4GB

Processor
If you want to play Valorant up with up to 60 frames per second, your PC or laptop must have at least a 4th generation of Intel Core i3, i3-4150, which is quite an old piece of hardware. Any modern gaming PC or laptop has way better processors. So it’s nothing to worry about.

Graphics cards
The same goes for the GPU. Nvidia GT730 is also an old graphics card, so anything new would do the job.

High-End System Requirements (up to 144 fps or more)

  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-4460
  • GRAPHICS: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti
  • MEMORY: 4GB

Processor
If you aim for the 144fps or more, then you nat least the Intel Core i5-4460. Which is still quite low CPU requirement. Even nowaday’s i3s have more than enough power to run the game flawlessly.

Graphics cards
The recommended GPU is the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. Today we get the GTX 1650 for the same price. If you prefer AMD, the AMD RX 570 will do the job.

Conclusion

Pretty much any PC will run Valorant just fine, stick to the system requirements. If you want to play just casually for fun than you can play the game basically on any newer PC or laptop today. But if you’re going to be a bit serious about playing Valorant and want a smooth silk graphics, you need to have a decent gaming machine.
