I am somewhat new to Manjaro, although I have been using it on my laptop for a few months now. I decided recently to switch my desktop over to Manjaro Gnome from linux mint as I was having issues with my GPU in mint that I could not seem to resolve. So far almost everything has just worked out of the box using the proprietary drivers, which for me is great.
However, immediately from install I have noticed that everything runs a little sluggish. Programs take several seconds to open and open new windows/pages. and especially browsing the web is unbearably slow. I ran a speedtest and got the full 1gig up/down speeds, but browsing from page to page takes several seconds to load. Also in steam my download speed seems to be capped at 1MB/s despite changing download servers to try and mitigate the issue. I thought maybe I have some sort of disk I/O issue, but I am unsure how to diagnose this (and it is sort of a shot in the dark). I tried copying a couple big files to see if the disk performance was lower than expected, but the files seemed to copy at the speeds I would expect for my ssd (Several hundred MB/s).
I apologize if the issue sounds sort of vague, the best I can compare it to is as if I was running everything off a cheap sd card. Once something is fully loaded it seems to run fine, its the initial loading, or once something needs to be fetched from disk that seems to make everything slow down.

I have already ran pacman -Syu to make sure everything is up to date. I just installed Manjaro yesterday, and the only additional software I have installed is Steam and Brave browser.
Any help would be appreciated.
Edit: Fixed the code tags (My bad)
Edit2: Updated inxi -Fazy output after BIOS update
Edit3: Updated inxi-Fazy output after kernel update to 5.15.2-2
