Very slow performance when inserting, updating, deleting and changing schema

I'm facing an issue that the only way I found myself to solve it is making a factory reset of my machine.

The problem I have is that the inserts, updates, deletes and schema modifications are taking a lot of time. The disk goes up to 100%, but performs with very slow speeds. This happens when making modifications by:
- Restoring backups from Workbench (speeds up to 5MB/s)
- Applying migrations and seeding a new db from a NodeJS process (speeds up to 1MB/s): this process used to be finished in 2 minutes, but now it takes about 30/40 minutes.

I think this started happening when I started trying to restore big backups (like 14GB of data). I believe this is not a coincidence.

The computer works great. Copying and pasting big files speeds the disk up to 400MB/s, what is a great performance. I use it for gaming and never see any related issues, so seems like the problem only happens with MYSQL.

My environment is:
- Razer Blade 15, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD NvME (CA5-8D512), I7 10TH processor
- Windows 10
- WSL 2 (Ubuntu 20.04)
- MySql 8.0 (running on WSL)
- MySQL Workbench (running on Windows)

My mysqld.cnf file looks like this:

socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
nice = 0

## * Basic Settings
user = mysql
pid-file = /var/run/mysqld/
socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
port = 3308
basedir = /usr
datadir = /var/lib/mysql
tmpdir = /tmp
lc-messages-dir = /usr/share/mysql

bind-address =
mysqlx-bind-address =

key_buffer_size = 16M
max_allowed_packet = 16M
thread_stack = 192K
thread_cache_size = 8

myisam-recover-options = BACKUP

log_error = /var/log/mysql/error.log

max_binlog_size = 100M
expire_logs_days = 10


Additional information: I tried also using Ubuntu OS, but the same issue happened.
