Sony RX10M2/RX100M4 sensor readout speed

Sony claimed a 5x improvement in readout speeds for the stacked sensor in the RX10M2/RX100M4 vs the previous generation RX10/RX100M3. Not sure what the precise readout speed was on the RX10/RX100M3 but I presume it to be 1/30 to match to its non-binned 1080 30fps video. The RX10M2 is the first camera I've seen that supports flash operation with its electronic shutter (other models force you to switch to the mechanical shutter when using flash). The max flash sync rate with the electronic shutter is 1/100, so I presume that is what the sensor readout rate is.

Here's what the electronic shutter exposures look like for faster sync speeds, made possible by using an external non-Sony flash on the hotshoe:

1/100

1/125

1/160

1/200

1/250

1/320

1/400

1/500

1/640

1/800

1/1000

1/1250
