Hi there, recently I've viewed some videos where people with an RX 570 have been getting ~200 FPS on Valorant at low settings. However, I'm only getting ~100 FPS average so I'm assuming that I'm being bottlenecked somewhere. Plus, when a lot of stuff is happening on the screen I usually get fps drops to ~75 FPS. I'm pretty sure that Valorant is a CPU-bound game so should I upgrade my CPU? My system is pretty old so I'd have to upgrade my motherboard as well. Would this increase my fps? Or does anyone with an RX 570 know what FPS they should be getting on Valorant?

Based on your userbenchmark results I would say your PC is working about as it should. You could check which SATA port your SSD is plugged into. It may be a 3Gb rather than a 6Gb port.
