Does a lower base ISO necessarily involve sacrificing high ISO performance?

It will tend to. The reason being that the read noise is proportional to the conversion gain of the pixel, which needs to be lower for a lower ISO pixel. The effect of higher read noise is more shadow noise in low light.

I guess you meant to say inversely proportional rather than proportional here.

Yes, I meant inversely proportional. Thanks for the correction.
