How to achieve 60 fps on OLy EM1 mk ii?

I rencently purchased an olympus EM1 mk II. Last night, I tried to test the maximum FPS, so i set the camera with the following setting:

  • Large JPEG/FINE (no RAW)
  • Silent H, set to a max of 60 fps.
  • Single autofocus
  • Made sure that my exposure was at least 1/400.

Then I pushed the trigger for 2-3 second and looked at how many picture were taken. I redid this test a number of times, and the best I could achieve was 11-12 fps.

My SD card is SDHX UHS-II, 150 Mbps installed in slot 1. The camera is set to only save picture on that card (I checked).

What am I doing wrong?

Strangely, I when I redid the same test with the mechanical shutter (H),  I got slightly better results (12-13 fps), which is still short of the advertised 15 fps.

Any idea?
