Write speed of original SSD installed in laptop (Intel SSD PRO 5450S 128 GB) is around 100 MB/s (what is not acceptable for SSD). Read speed is OK (~500 MB/s). Laptop is 1 week old.
SSD firmware version: LHFL01N
AHCI mode enabled.
OS: Windows 10 x64 Ent (latest updates installed).
Same issue under Win 8.1 PE.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums. It’s expected to get a lower result than the one advertised for the drive, if you run the test on a drive that is the primary boot drive with OS installed in it and for sure lots of data is already installed in it. There is a similar discussion in Intel's community forums where they're suggesting to set the drive you wanted to test as the secondary drive rest of the instructions can be found in their community forums, 100 MB/s write speed is still within normal range.

I have another laptop with Samsung SSD which is also a primary boot drive and it's making > 400 MB/s!
100 MB/s is not acceptable for SSD drive in year 2018! My old 7200 rpm HDD is working faster in sequential write mode (also primary boot drive). It's making 120 MB/s!
