Call of Duty: Black Ops PC Patch Fixes Lag

by on November 12, 2010

PC gamers were left disappointed this week with their purchase of Treyarch’s latest first person shooter. The PC version of  Black Ops had been plagued with frame rate issues which affected both the single and multi-player aspects of the game. Players would frequently encounter 5-30 seconds of frozen screens resulting in frustrating, choppy gameplay.

Today’s patch seems to have fixed an issue with dual and quad core processors resulting in reduced “lag”. Playing earlier we did not encounter the dreaded freeze and noticed a notable increase of 5-15 frames per second taking our previously low 45 frames, up to a solid 60 on occasion.

Full patch notes (found below) were posted earlier today by Treyarch’s very own JD_2020.
