A7R IV RAW+JPEG Maximum files sizes and best memory cards decision

I need to make a decision of what cards to buy for the two card slots in the Sony A7R IVA. I intend to shoot RAW+Jpeg. Raw to be stored on a card and Jpeg on the other card. I knew that Uncompressed raw files will be about 128 Megabytes. So a 128 GB card would take about 1000 Uncompressed raw images.

What about the Jpeg that will be recorded on the other card, What will be its size ? assuming that i will choose the highest quality available for that jpeg file.

And that will lead me to a conclusion that may need confirmation from you.

If I'll shoot 1000 images I'll need a 128 GB card size in slot 1.

What card size will I need in slot 2 for the 1000 highest quality jpegs ?

And what card type do i need in the second card slot to get the maximum buffer speed of the camera then ?

knowing that I will use a Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-II in the first slot.

Thank you a lot in advance.
