I don't think spin rates should change according to swing speeds. The more spin=higher, less spin=lower, depends on what your looking for.

I think this is what you're looking for:
However, I believe opinions and equipment are beginning to change to even make this 2 year old chart out of date. Guys like Bubba Watson who launch the ball super high with scary low spin are changing minds about fitting.
If you have a high ball speed and can launch the ball very high, low spin is the way to go. Lower launch and ball speed might require more spin to generate some lift for the ball.
It's not quite as cut and dry as charts like the one above would like to make it anymore. It's about finding the correct range for your swing and maximizing things from there.
