Issues with new Alienware 17 R3 SSD 100% utilization/slow performance

Just got my laptop today and there seem to be an issue with 256G SSD drive. Installing anything takes the drive up to 100%, takes longer than usual and nothing can be done at the same time, trying to run any applications just freezes until drive usage goes back to normal.

Tried automated driver update detection, that failed. Looked into BIOS update and I am running the latest version. Reinstall Intel controller, no help.

Any ideas? Am I sending it back? Thank you
