Valorant is a highly competitive game, and if you wanna be any good at it you have to make sure that you’re getting as many Frames Per Second (FPS) as possible to have a competitive advantage over other players.
Since Valorant runs decently well on low-spec PCs, you don’t have to invest much in hardware to get good FPS in Valorant. However, you have to make sure that your Valorant is optimized to improve FPS and reduce lag, stuttering, and other issues.
In this article, we’ll be covering the steps you need to take to increase FPS in Valorant while reducing the lag and any micro-stutters you may encounter while playing the title.
How to Increase Valorant FPS and Optimize Performance
Players can follow these simple steps to increase FPS in Valorant:
- To get the maximum number of frames per second while playing Valorant, simply copy these Graphics Settings to your Valorant client:

These will get you the maximum FPS in Valorant. Set the in-game resolution as per your personal preference, but remember that the lower your resolution, the higher FPS you get in Valorant.
- Right-click on the Valorant icon on your PC and select properties. Select ‘compatibility’ and check to disable full-screen optimization.
- Update the drivers for your PC and your Graphics Card.
- NVIDIA users can set the following settings from their NVIDIA Control Panel to increase Valorant FPS:
- CUDA – GPUs: All
- Power Management Mode: Prefer maximum performance

Following these simple steps should drastically improve your FPS in Valorant and reduce any lag or stutters that you might have been facing while playing the game.
