Theoretically speaking

If the A65 camera is capable of shutter speeds of 1/4000, would it not be able to take 4000 frames per second?

Given that there would be overheads in processing the capture, cut it down to half. That still means 2000 frames per second.

So why all the hoopla around 10 fps burst rate? I suspect this limitation is related to the data bus bandwidth from transferring the data from the sensor to the memory. Is that right?
