Applying the best Valorant settings for fps can dramatically improve your chances of succeeding in those game-changing games and climbing the gaming ladder. However, reducing your gaming PC’s system latency is just as important as have a higher frame rate, and we’re here to help you do both.
There are more nuances in the best Valorant settings than just knocking the game’s various graphics options as low as possible and calling it day. In fact, doing this can inhibit your ability to read game environments through blurry textures and distracting blurry edges.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best Valorant settings that prioritize frames per second without sacrificing too much on how the game’s visuals look. Unfortunately, neither AMD FSR, Nvidia DLSS, or Intel XeSS show up in the options menu. , but Nvidia Reflex is available and can reduce your system latency if you’re using an Nvidia GeForce GTX 900 or newer graphics card.

Parameters of the best valiants
Here are the best Valorant settings:
- Display mode: Full screen
- Nvidia Reflex Low Latency: Enabled + Boost (if supported)
- Multi-threaded rendering: enabled
- Material quality: high
- Texture quality: high
- Quality of details: Low
- UI quality: low
- Thumbnail: Disabled
- VSync: disabled
- Antialiasing: MSAA 4x
- Anisotropic filtering: 8x
- Improve Clarity: Off
- [Beta] Experimental Sharpen: Enabled
- Flowering: activated
- Distortion: Off
- Shadow Casting: Off
These settings should provide the best balance between visual quality and performance for most gaming PCs, but there are a few key changes you can make to affect Valorant’s performance and appearance.
We have found Quality of details to be the most demanding of the graphics options in Valorant. It changes the level of detail applied to the background and non-gameplay related effects, so you won’t miss anything critical by turning it down to “Low”. That said, most systems should have little trouble running it in its top presets.
Material Quality has the most significant impact on the game’s visuals, controlling the complexity of its shaders. It doesn’t have a significant impact on frames per second for most graphics cards, so we recommend running it in as high a preset as your PC can handle.
Anisotropic filtering and Bloom also give Valorant a greater sense of flair with their higher presets and thankfully don’t have a large performance footprint. That said, try disabling the latter before lowering the former if you need to increase fps.
Whereas Nvidia Reflex low latency won’t help your frame rate, it will reduce your system’s input lag. Essentially, this allows your PC to draw frames as quickly as possible, meaning you’ll be able to see enemies sooner and somewhat dampen things like the peeker’s advantage as a defender. There is no downside to enabling this setting, so we recommend switching it to “On + Boost” mode.
Valorant performance issues
You shouldn’t experience many Valorant performance issues, but if you have an AMD Ryzen processor and one of the best gaming motherboards from Asus, you might experience a few minor issues. Luckily, there is a simple fix that you can apply to fix any problem you are having.
Just follow the steps below, but please note that this fix will only work if Asus AI Suite 3 is installed on your gaming PC and HPET is enabled:
- Press the Windows key on your keyboard and type ordered
- Right click command prompt and select Execute as administrator
- Type bcdedit.exe /set useplatformclock false and press Walk in
- When ‘The operation went well’ appears, restart your PC
- Enjoy your improved performance
Upgrading your gaming CPU and GPU can also help improve performance, and you don’t need to go searching for the best graphics card or CPU to keep Valorant running at blazing clocks. elevated images. In fact, most of the components released in the last five years, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or the Intel Core i5 9400F, are very powerful for Riot Games’ tactical FPS.
