A7 IV Second SD Card Speed Requirements?

Hi there,

I haven’t been able to find a solid answer to this so far online: Does the second card in the camera matter when saving to both? I have my camera set up to shoot lossless compressed raw to both slots simultaneously, I’m curious though if I need a full UHS-II V90 card in both slots to maintain the write speed or is it the first card slot that matters more? I’d love to get a larger (total of the other 2), slightly slower, card to use as the second of I could and use my 2 V90s as slot 1 cards (fill one, swap to the other idea).

Is that possible or does having one card slow being the other down with it?

I mainly shoot wildlife and don’t do a ton of burst shooting, but like the ability when I do want to.
