Fastest write method to cards (Sony A9ii)

Hi, I'm looking to understand what the fastest write method is with my A9ii. I don't really use the jpegs that much, but sometimes it's nice to share quickly by transferring to phone.

I assume it's faster to write only RAW (I'll always shoot a RAW version, never JPEG only) to a single card?

If I want a backup, (never needed one, not a pro) would it be faster to write RAW to both cards, or JPEG to the second card?

Currently I write RAW to Card 1 and JPEG to Card 2. Not having any issues but always nice to clear the buffer faster. I use 2 SanDisk 64MB @ 300MB/s. Other stuff it says are V90, XCII, 3, 10.

Thanks for any help!
