Cod4 and black ops major fps problems!


I just upgraded my PC's CPU and GPU from a phenom x2 ii 810 and a 9600GT to an i5 2500 sandy bridge and a 470GTX MSI Nvidia.

I've noticed major fps improvement in most games such as The Witcher 2 and World of Warcraft but I have been facing a major problem with my only two steam bought games, Call of Duty Black Ops and Call of Duty 4.

I would get around 90 FPS and it will drop constantly (every 1-3seconds) to around 15-25 fps and go back up. This made both games unplayable.

any help would be highly appreciated. thanks in advance :)

PC specs:

Intel i5 Sandy Bridge 2500 3.30GHz
MSI 470 gtx Nvidia 1gb
600watts Coolmax PSU
4ggb 1333 ddr3 kingston ram
320gb caviar blue western digital hard drive
Intel Desktop Board DH67GD Media Series

  1. Have you tried updating the GPU driver? Also try checking for temp issue on your videocard
  2. i played cod4 on the computer.. there wasnt any problem with fps drops back then.

    black ops runs low the majority of the time.. the fps dont jump up to max very often at all, unless you are inside a building with your nose in a corner.

    it doesnt sound like what the rest of the world has seen in the past.
    cod4 should be running at max with some dips based on screen activity.

    maybe you run some benchmarks to see if your scores are normal.
  3. Run a CPU monitor and see if the cpu freqency constantly jumps.

    Install all the newest drivers.
