I compared the original image with the JPEG image saved at maximum quality and imported back into Photoshop. I did not notice any significant difference in the drop shadow at 100% zoom level.

Could you please post screenshots taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? 

 

It seems like this might be the old cache-issue.

The video was recorded at 31% zoom level and NOT at the requested 100% zoom level where 1 image pixel is directly mapped to 1 screen pixel (1:1).

 

Here is an animation at 100% view, there is no change in appearance!

Can you post before/after or Photoshop versus exported image and export or save settings?

This occurs if I merge the two text layers. I can see that is what Photoshop does when I save to JPG.

I am looking for a more spread out noise appearance. See attached.
