So, I always loved modding and changing Skyrim graphics and enviromment. I have 50+ mods installed on my Skyrim and they are mostly texture and parallax mods like 2k Skyrim HD, Tamriel Reloaded, PPR, Vivid Landscapes, Terrian Parallax, ect. I also use RLO, CoT, SoS, SMIM, WATER, Grass on Steroids, HighRes DLC, ect. I have some mods that adds new things to the game like Immersive Weapons and Armours, Cloaks of Skyrim, Interesting NPC's, TAVE, etc. I'm also using "i can't believe it's not ENB" - Sweetfx Preset.
All that stuff makes Skyrim really heavy and laggy, but with some adjustments and tweaking it's possible to play decently. So i'm using ENBoost and i've compressed all the textures to 1K with Ordenator and this helped me a lot with vram and stuff like that. But, with all those mods the FPS impact is huge. I know, it's impossible to have a lot of mods without a performance impact but I wanted to know if there is some way to reduce this impact and find a point of balance between performance and quality.

Comparing Vanilla Skyrim with my modded Skyrim
Comparing both images, the visual difference is very perceptive, however, there is a drop of 15 fps. I would like to know wich kind of mod usually causes this performance impact and if there's someway to fix that. I apreciate your comment, thanks for reading. I'm sorry if I did something wrong or if my vocabulary is wrong, I'm brazillian and this is my first post
