Benchmark

We use the full version of Call of Duty: Black Ops for Windows for our benchmarks and decided to benchmark the first mission in Cuba using Fraps to record the average framerate. We start in the bar as soon as the cigarette is lighted and stop after the car you drive crashes into the police car. As it is a gameplay level, the numbers may differ from run to run slightly.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
123Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.

What laptop do I need for playing Black Ops

Our benchmark results indicate that you should at least go for a GeForce 420M class graphics card if you want to play Call of Duty Black Ops in low-medium details. To play fluently in high details, a performance graphics card for laptops like the GeForce 445M is needed. Early versions of the game still stuttered a bit altough the average framerate was good. At least a Core i3-330M processor and 2GB RAM should be used in the system.
