GDrive Daisy Chain

Hi guys,

Newb question sorry.

Setup:
10TB G-drive with 2 TB3 ports and USB 3
MacBook Pro 16” 4x TB3
MacMini 2020 2x TB3
MacBook Pro 2013” 2xTB2 via mini DP with TB2->TB3 adapter also available to me
…other bits

Ethernet on each machine.

Questions:

  1. Which is fastest or are they the same? And what configuration would you guys use?

GDRIVE-> MM->MBP 16”
Or
GDRIVE-> MBP16” ->MM
Or
MM → GDRIVE-> MBP 16”
Or
TB Bridge to each MBP2013, MBP16” and MM With GDRIVE connecting via 1 TB port to MBP16”.

  1. Can Ethernet to MBP13” from USB C on GDrive via adapter be connected SIMULTANEOUSLY
    OR
    WIll this take out the TB Daisy Chain slowing down the TB connections?

Regards
Steve
