You can have a look at one of my answer here about how to setup replication in easy steps:

How to set up simple database replication using WAMP server?

You can point your application to Master server for writing purpose and for reading purpose point application to Slave server(s).

This will help in balancing the load of application and hence you can achieve better performance.
