The problem is the following:

Installed Skyrim last week on my new and stronger pc, and everything is fine. I downloaded 160 mods which i really needed, and again, everything is fine. Played like normal.

Until 2 days ago, when the game's performance suddenly dropped.   Not clear why. I found out using Steam's built in fps counter that the fps is constantly at 16 during gameplay, and in the main menu.
During loading screens, it is 30+.    

Never encountered anything like this before, and i can't find anything on google about it that helps...    

Not sure what happened, like i said, the game was running very good, even on ultra settings and using an ENB.

I'd kindly ask for advice, as this is ruining my game.

If you start a new game does it still run at the 16fps?

#1 check your shadow settings in steam make sure it's not on ultra

#2 make sure Skyrim is using your dedicated GPU
