Call of Duty: Black Ops System Requirements

By October 27, 2010

Follow me on:

The minimum system requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops have been revealed through the official Call of Duty Forums. Can You Run It also has the requirements in their database and is a good place to check if your PC will run the game based on the minimum requirements. No word yet on the recommended system requirements for the PC but they will most likely be pretty close to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 system requirements. Call of Duty: Black Ops is set for release in two weeks on November 9, 2010.

PC MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
 • OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7
 • CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better
 • RAM: 2GB
 • HDD: 12GB of free space
 • VIDEO: Shader 3.0 or better; 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT DirectX 9.0c or better
 • SOUND: DirectX 9.0c-compatible
 • DirectX: 9.0c
