TG-5 How to get 20 fps burst?

I did a bunch of tests and I am unable to get the advertised 20 fps burst (what the call "Sequential High").

I am using 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC UHS-1 cards (class 10), which are fast enough to shoot 4K video.

The fastest burst I can get is about 13 fps, if I save only JPEG (not RAW), in normal quality, with noise filter OFF.

Is there a trick to get the 20 fps bursts that Olympus advertises?

Of course, I know one trick which is shoot 4K video at 30 fps, and then extract individual frames, which get me 30 fps, at a resolution of only 3840 × 2160 = ~8 mega-pixel.
