Just buy an external enclosure that has USB 3.0 (they're like $5-10 max), and put whatever drive you want in that.
USB 3 (5Gb/s) is faster than SATA2 (3Gb/s) and almost the same speed as SATA3 (6Gb/s) anyways. Not sure which the X has, but either way, you're getting equal or better performance on external USB.
And a HDD's performance is limited by its own read speed, not the interface (that's why previous Xbox systems had SATA2).
I don't know much about SSHDs, but you're not gonna be reading a ton off the cache, so the performance difference isn't much unless you only play 1-2 games.
With an SSD there could be a difference if the X does use SATA3 (which I don't think it does), but you're talking 5Gb/s vs. 6Gb/s, not a huge difference.
