Hey guys I just want to share a tip that removed my microstuttering and improved my frame rate alot.
I thought this game was very poorly optimized because my pc would only get about 70% utilization on both the cpu and the gpu.
It turns out that my computer was held back by the fact that I have 8gb of ram. When I did monitor the ram usage it only went up to 7 out of 8 gb so I though nothing of it.
But when I decided to check out the pagefile and it was using 11gb!!
When I moved my pagefile from my hdd (110 mbps write and read speed) to my ssd ( 3100mbps read and 1100 write speed) I gained a frame rate increase of 20 - 30 fps.
And the microstuttering was almost completely gone.
Just wanted to share this tip and hopefully it will help some of you get rid of the annoying stuttering.

    Well unless you have a M.2 NVME SSD, there is no way your SSD is reading at 3Gb/s......secondly, why not upgrade your RAM?

    Well, he probably does have an NVMe SSD, which isn't unusual (Lots of good deals out there now)

    Moving pagefile to your SSD is an easier and quicker solution than upgrading your RAM.

    If you can afford or are willing to spend the money on an NVMe drive, then you can afford or should be willing to spend the money on 16gb of ram. 16gb ram has been pretty "standard" for 4+ years now. NVMe drives just became pretty "standard" within the last 4 months.

    I have a nvme drive in my laptop that's why I can reach these speeds.
    I bought my machine with the specs I have now and the nvme ssd was in the machine and it only has 8gb of ram installed from the factory.
    I will probably upgrade my laptop to 32gb ddr4 ram.
    Atleast now I know what the issue is.
    Also laptop cpu's are usually too weak to play new aaa games but I have a desktop i5 8400 in my laptop so no worries xD

    Ok things are making a lot more sense now that you said you have a laptop, you said PC in your post.

    He said PC and he was right... Laptops and Desktop both are PCs my friend, even the handheld Surface pro is a PC.

    Having 16GB ram let the game take over 8GB usually. So while it runs with 8GB, it prefers more. Same with ram on video cards. It will run on minimum spec, but if more available, it will take and use more=better gameplay overall.

    How did you check the pagefile usage?

    RAM is much faster anyway.
