If you get any stuttering reduce some of your graphics settings. Hopefully future builds of Elite Dangerous will reduce this.

Known Issues

If you see a side-by-side image and you're on a NVIDIA card. Check your driver version. If you're on 
347.09 the fix is to roll back to 344.75 or move to a newer version. This will correct the side-by-side image you get when using the Oculus Rift DK2 in Elite Dangerous.
