**Everywhere. Happens in-game frequently (seems especially bad during combat), but even occurs on Main Menu to a lesser degree.
A smooth and consistent 40-60fps framerate is punctuated frequently (several times per minute; see video) by short (0.5 - 3 sec) stutters during which all movement on screen freezes. It appears that mouse/keyboard input is still active during these stutters. This issue was not seen as recently as yesterday. Only started seeing it today. Persists after Windows restart / Task Manager processes cleanup. Have not changed anything on computer since the issue started.
**1. No stuttering (from 2/27/2015)
2. Stuttering issue (from today, 3/8/2015)
