Valorant System Requirements in 2023 – 30/60/144 FPS

Here is a look at the Valorant system requirements for 2023.

Riot Games' popular shooter has been around for three years now, and now is as good a time as any to get involved. Before you do, however, let's make sure you have the system to cope with it. Thankfully, it's great news for the vast majority of people, as Valorant will run on almost any system, with System specs not being that demanding.

Valorant has gone for a more stylish look, something akin to Fortnite or Overwatch, and as a result, the game’s minimum specs are really lenient. Below are the specific requirements from Riot Games for 30, 60 and 144FPS alongside a few bare minimum requirements to run the game.

Valorant System Requirements – PC Hardware Recommendations

Minimum Requirements:

Nothing crazy here, any modern Windows system, a reasonable amount of Ram and a modern GPU.

  • Windows 10/11 64 bit
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1GB VRAM for systems that use dedicated graphics

Minimum Specs – 30 FPS:

Coming in at the most basic FPS, Riot Games is looking to target the kind of hardware you’d expect in an old laptop. Valorant is supposed to work on systems released in the last decade and with these 30 FPS targets, we can see why. Obviously, for a fast-paced shooter, 30 FPS really is the bare minimum and something we would not recommend. But if it’s this or not playing the game, Valorant is going to run on almost anything.

  • CPU: Intel HD 4000 or AMD Radeon R5 200
  • GPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 or AMD Athlon 200GE

Recommended Spec – 60 FPS:

As we move into the 60 FPS target, the game should start to feel like what you’re used to. 60 FPS has been the standard for console shooters this generation. While we’re quickly moving up the FPS charts as we head into the next generation of hardware, these recommended specs should be fairly easy to hit.

  • CPU: Intel i3-4150 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200
  • GPU: Geforce GT 730 or AMD Radeon R7 240

High-end Specs – 144+ FPS:

This is the FPS where the professional players and the most dedicated of Valorant players are going to be at. At 144, we hit the limit of what most consumer monitors are currently able to handle, and you’re going to be experiencing the best of what Valorant has to offer. However, you’re not looking at breaking the bank for those specs. The recommended hardware isn’t going to be a huge stretch and will be found in most “gaming” PCs of the last few years.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-944F 2.9GHz or Ryzen 5 2600X
  • GPU: GTX 1050 Ti or Radeon R7 370
