I'm curious about the buffer+card performance of the A1.

The A9 and A9II are great for sports because you can take 20fps for a LONG time.

I am not shure about this LONG time, since mostly pretty short bursts are taken. Eles you might shoot video. With 4K and 8K you can grab individual frames ans still have data for pretty large print.

With the A1 (uncompressed) you get 20fps but with 50mp it'll only last you for ca. 3 seconds.

Buffer: 400 jpg files and 238 RAW files, from the specifications given, but yet no info about how fast the buffer will clear.

So combined with the newer cards what does that mean for real life use? How many seconds can you take pictures for?

That's what is interesting, because 30fps and 20fps is great, especially at 50mp but sometimes you need/want to go well over 10 seconds.

I am not so sure about this claim.
