    To optimize Valorant for better performance on your computer, you can follow these steps:

    1. Update your graphics drivers: Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers installed for your GPU. You can usually download them from the manufacturer's website (e.g., NVIDIA, AMD).

    2. Adjust in-game settings:
      • Launch Valorant and go to the Settings menu.
      • Set the resolution to your monitor's native resolution.
      • Set the display mode to Fullscreen (not windowed or borderless) for better performance.
      • Lower graphics settings such as texture quality, shadow quality, and anti-aliasing. Experiment with different settings to find the right balance between performance and visual quality.
    3. Disable unnecessary background processes: Close any unnecessary applications or processes running in the background, as they can consume system resources and affect game performance. Use the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) to identify and close any unwanted processes.

    4. Disable overlays and recording software: Disable any overlays or recording software such as Discord overlay, GeForce Experience overlay, or OBS. These programs can interfere with the game's performance.

    5. Set Valorant's CPU priority:
      • Launch Valorant and open the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).
      • Go to the "Details" tab and find "VALORANT-Win64-Shipping.exe" in the list.
      • Right-click on it and go to "Set Priority" > "High." This can help allocate more CPU resources to the game.
    6. Check for background downloads or updates: Make sure there are no ongoing downloads or updates happening in the background, as they can impact your network bandwidth and affect game performance.

    7. Disable Windows Game Mode: In some cases, Windows Game Mode can interfere with game performance. To disable it:
      • Open the Windows Settings (Windows key + I).
      • Go to "Gaming" and click on "Game Mode" in the left sidebar.
      • Toggle off the "Game Mode" switch.
    8. Close unnecessary browser tabs: If you have multiple browser tabs open while playing Valorant, consider closing them. Web browsers can consume significant system resources, especially if running complex websites or videos.

    9. Restart your computer: Sometimes, a simple restart can help clear out temporary files and processes that may be affecting game performance.

    10. Consider hardware upgrades: If your computer's hardware is outdated or below the game's recommended requirements, you may need to upgrade your components, such as the CPU, GPU, or RAM, for better performance.
    Remember to experiment with different settings to find the right balance between performance and visual quality that suits your preferences and hardware capabilities.
