If the volumes are in sync the sync speed should not affect DRBD performance
in any way. And if they are not in sync, raising sync speed would even make
the performance worse, since DRBD would spend more resources on resync and
less on the application's workload!

This sounds more like something for the DRBD performance tuning webinar.
Tuning of al-extents, network parameters and the like. Also if a battery
backed RAID controller is being used (and it should):
can be used which make a huge difference in writing performance. But in any
case the webinar and some good benchmarking should be the first step.
