So I finally got to installing ubuntu on my PC at home.
Installation went fine, smooth and all. When I finally rebooted into the OS everything was terribly slow. I started by installing the latest NVidia drivers and using the processor microcode firmware setting. Rebooted again but that didn't do anything either. Opening the file manager for example takes about 3-4 seconds. Is there a driver I am still missing? Could it have to do something with it being a M2 SSD?
Performance on Windows is unfortunately fine.
Using Ubuntu 15.10
- 16GB DDR4 Ram
- 512GB Samsung 950 Evo

The output of cpupower frequency-info. I've changed the governor to perfomance now :).
