Performance (FPS) tanks when panning

RTX 2060, i9 9900k, 32 Gb RAM, NVMe SSD, 4k monitor.

With all settings maxed out at 4k and the FPS limited to 60 (in Nvidia settings to avoid tearing), the GPU sits at about 70-80% usage and the CPU almost idling. I can play at stable 60fps… as long as I don’t pan around. Once I do, the FPS drop significantly (~40fps) and the GPU usage jumps to 100%.

This happens even on almost empty maps, at the start of a game. No matter the size of the map or number of players. Others have reported similar performance issues when panning.
