If you're playing VALORANT on a high-end device, you may want to turn on Multithreaded Rendering – a video setting that can improve CPU performance and graphics quality on high spec devices (you can get more specifics in these patch notes).
To make the most of multithreaded rendering, make sure your device has these minimum specs:
- 8 GB RAM
- 2 GB VRAM
- CPU with at least 8 cores (physical and virtual, so many 4 core CPUs should work).
To turn multithreaded rendering on/off:
- Click the Gear icon - - in the upper right corner of the main menu to open the Options menu.
- Click Settings.
- Click Graphics Quality.
- The first option here is Multithreaded Rendering. Click on or off to turn this setting on or off.
If you have any issues, feel free to /submit a ticket for additional assistance.
