The A9 uses a very expensive stacked sensor with multiple chips - sensor, memory, processing all connected very tightly with contacts throughout the chip area instead of on the edges. The datarate this allows is phenomenal. Other architectural tricks also employed in lesser sensors, such as block readout, support this datarate. But clearly the A9 is a halo product. And still it's comparable to the D5, not the D6. Crosspoint sensors can push that performance even farther.

The EOS 1dX III also (on paper) does 20 fps with AF tracking. But it is not a stacked sensor as far as I know...
