The best Valorant settings 2020: Tweaks and benchmarks

If ever there were a game to justify a fancy 144Hz monitor, it’s Riot’s new “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Counter-Strike” shooter Valorant. A millisecond can be the difference between life and death, between a clutch win and a loss. 

The good news is Valorant, as a competitive game designed for global audiences, will run—and run well—on just about any old toaster. Honestly this is one of the least demanding big games of the past decade, by far.
