How does the a9 shoot 20 fps?

Sony advertises 20 fps for the a9 in continuous. What technology makes this possible? As I understand it, the a9 has a Bionz X processor like my a7iii which shoots at about half that rate. Is it a new and better version of the chip? Some other technical development?

I'm curious as my passion is shooting birds in flight at about 10 fps. I think I would have little use for more than 10 fps, but still curious.
