Lag when scrolling with latests snapshots

I use Vivaldi since almost the beginning and I recently experienced a big drop in performance when scrolling. I use a precision trackpad on my laptop and I noticed this issue on some other hardware too.
I have to specify you that I disable smooth scrolling in Vivaldi's flags. I find that the scroll is a lot faster that way (otherwise there is a time between my move and the feedback). This worked like a charm until recently. I can't really say since which snapshot, but the scrolling is a lot more laggy than before. I made a video (sorry for the quality) to show you the difference (on the left, the latest snapshot and on the right, the stable version). It is like the new version runs around 15-20 fps when the stable (and previous snapshots) are really smooth.
I love Vivaldi, but I have to admit that those drops in performances are quite embarrassing. In comparison I find the latest versions of Firefox a lot faster (also a lot more reactive during the page loading)...
thanks in advance!
