Fps drops when zooming out at 2x zoom setting

So, my fps drops to 40ish but feels like 20 fps(a lot of stutter) when I zoom out past a certain point in the 2x zoom setting. I get solid 60fps if I zoom out “halfway” to the maximum.

Does anyone know of some way to improve this?

Yeah if you zoom out from 1X zoom setting the FPS drops like a rock. My guess is that the engine just gets overloaded with the extra rendering effort. This is even more noticeable if you play with a high resolution (4K) to begin with.

I’m playing at 1920x1080 which is my native resolution.

I’ve seen a video of a guy zooming all the way out in 2x setting and maintaining 60 PFS(or, at least smooth 50s) and whish I could do the same.

He probably has a much better rig than mine, though my processor is fairly new.
