Two SSDs and an HDD: what's the fastest possible configuration?

Hey guys,

I've got a new production laptop with a 512GB SSD. I also have two external drives:

  1. 256GB SSD (USB 3.0)
  2. 2TB 7200RPM  (USB 3.0)

At the moment everything is sitting on the internal SSD, including my sample libraries and WIP. Not having any issues with space.

I want to know if there's any performance benefit in splitting my files across multiple hard drives? E.g.

  1. Moving my sample library to the external HDD
  2. Moving Ableton's swap to the external SSD
  3. Moving my WIP projects to the external SSD

Are there any ways I can get improved performance, or is the high-speed internal SSD going to be best?
