Valid point about shutter vs mirror, but I don't think mirror flipping could be a battery issue. Both D7100 and D800 use the same battery.

The mirrors are not the same size though, the D800 mirror is over twice as large. Again, to get the D800 mirror to go from 5 fps to 6 fps requires going from 7 volts to 10.8 volts (those are the rated voltage of the EN-EL15 versus the EN-EL18 or 8 AA batteries).

So 6-7fps is already possible. adding 2 more may be a matter of firmware.

Adding two more to seven is adding is 28% more.
