I am fairly new to pc gaming but when playing the game Valorant i've noticed that my gpu usage is only at 40% and cpu 25%. As a result my fps is only around 100 whereas, from what I read, it should be around 200.

My specs are:
Gpu : RTX 3050
Cpu : Ryzen 7 4800H
Ram: 16gb (Single channel)

Also I use a laptop, no MUX switch.
Does anyone know the cause?
Is it because of the single channel ram, or maybe because of a bottleneck in the system? Thanks.

Your single channel memory will be a big limitation.
