Is there a way to disable Mass Effect Andromeda's hair physics?

★★★★ Novice

I play ME:A on the PC. I've got a not so much powerful PC, and, I was wondering, for FPS's sake: is there a way to disable Mass Effect Andromeda's hair physics, since they're one of the most heavy on perfomance elements of the game?

It's an AMD specific problem, so now that I know you have a Geforce GPU, it doesn't really apply. The tessellation setting I'm referring to is an override in the GPU settings, not the game. 

 

I don't know if it's possible to get a smooth framerate on a 720M, but here's a video with tips on how to lower some graphics settings that aren't in the game's graphics options.

I don't think so.

 

What hardware do you have? I have an AMD GPU (R9 390) and for me the biggest performance boost at no discernible visual cost was disabling tessellation from the AMD settings.This doubled my framerate. Nvidia, last time I checked, didn't have this setting, but was also not affected performance-wise by tessellation.

I've got a NVIDIA 720M, an i5-4200U and 6gb of RAM.

What do you mean by "Nvidia didn't have this setting"? You mean it's not possible to disable it on a system running on a Nvidia card?
