    Fallout 4 shudder - since launch


      I have had a shudder only while playing FO4 since launch. It happens every one second or so. Bethesda support is out of ideas and has basically said to go fly a kite. We've been through all the standard troubleshooting channels. It does it no matter what the graphics settings are weather v-sync is on or off or triple buffering, doesn't matter what I cap the frame rate at. I get VERY low CPU usage (>30%) and only about 80% GPU usage with only about half my GPU memory used. I'm flat out of ideas. Any help would be much appreciated.
