Mass Effect 3 Frames dropped from 60 fps to 8 fps how could this be? I was playing the game in 1080 at 60 fps then all of a sudden mass effect 3 was laggy as hell so i checked it with fraps and my frames were at 5-8 fps!! How I fixed it was even more unbelievable log in to Origin then go to settings and Origin In Game "OIG" disable this and all your problems will be gone. I can now play mass effect 3 as intended! :) I still cant believe that the origin overlay would have caused this but trust me it worked for me.
