Working properly in 4.18 CL# 3832480

Found in 4.19 CL# 4033788, 4.20 Preview 3 CL# 4135216, 4.21 CL# 4136834

This is a regression.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open project in 4.19 [Link Removed]
  2. Play in standalone
  3. Open the Console and enable "Stat UnitGraph" or "Stat RenderThreadCommands"

Performance is very poor in comparison to 4.18

When playing in standalone the performance should match
