i'll redownload splinter cell and give it a try for myself (since i'm on a gtx980M laptop too) and will see about doing some records to confirm if there's any noticeable stutter for me at 1920x1080 or maybe even 1440x1080 for 4:3.
The stutter also existed on my previous laptop which had a 765M. I'm thinking it's just an issue with my settings somehow. If you manage to get it without any stuttering, tell me the settings you use.
Main thing to look for are when you first begin a level and when you first activate thermal, as the framerate stutters for a bit before going back to normal (and subsequent activating of thermal works fine, so I assume it's just some initial loading stuff).
