Fullscreen video framedrop with hardware acceleration and g-sync on

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

1.enable G-sync
2.activate hardware acceleration on brave
3.open random youtube video in fullscreen, activate statistics for nerds, and let it run

Expected result:
after few moments the frames will drop and even cause the video to reload
you can see in the statistics how the framedrop count climbs exponentialy
Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.8.90
Additional Information:
im running the latest nvidia drivers version, running on gtx 1080ti.
it also occured while i was browsing kickstart, the fullscreen mode was also chompy, with very low framerate and constant freezes.
i am alsow rocking 3440 X 1440 120 hz monitor…

Also been having this issue when watching 1080p60 Twitch streams, disabling G-sync fixes it but isn’t a viable solution. It doesn’t happen when using Google Chrome or Firefox.

Edit: Brave Version: 1.9.76
