how about the combined read noise of 50M pixels compared to the combined read noise of 20M pixels.

The combined read noise can be marginally, and I mean marginally, higher than the noise of a single pixel. Decreasing the maximum charge opens a possibility to improve performance in terms of noise.

Mr. Claff kindly keeps the original Aptina white paper on dual gain, it might help explaining the relationships: https://www.photonstophotos.net/Aptina/DR-Pix_WhitePaper.pdf

Thank you for your comments and for the Aptina white paper.

It's not just about Sony sensors, it's also about noise characteristics dependence on conversion gain and charge capacity.
