Destiny 2 Radeon RX 480 lags @ Highest video performance & Res

So, whenever I play Destiny 2 on PC and attempt to get the maximum resolution in display, my graphic's card tends to lag the screen and apparently use 100% or GPU resources. This shouldn't be the case by a long shot not even considering my PC specs. Here are my PC specs;

- G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600

- Intel 7th Gen Intel Core Desktop Processor i7-7700K

- ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX Motherboard

- ASUS ROG STRIX Radeon Rx 480 8GB DP 1.4 HDMI 2.0 Polaris Vr Ready Graphics Cards

- Apevia ATX-JP800W Jupiter 800W 80 Plus Bronze Certified Active PFC ATX Gaming Power Supply

- Cooler Master Hyper RR-212E-20PK-R2 LED CPU Cooler with PWM Fan, Four Direct Contact Heat Pipes

Now I know it has been said multiple times, and I've checked everywhere without a clear response as to why does my graphic card seem to not pack a punch when it comes to playing video games, when it hands down should without a problem. Any suggestions?

Read some of the 'destiny 2 graphics performance tweak guides'. Some have graphs of what different settings/higher res will impact on gameplay.
