Max writing speed on K-3 III?

Anyone with a superfast card and K-3 III? Could you please let me know how long it takes to save raw images from buffer to the UHS-II card?

Here's what I'm thinking .. there are cards that can write 300 MB/s. Which means pretty much that 9 raw images could be saved per second. Does that mean that a buffer full of 35 raw images is saved in 4 seconds?

Separate question... does the writing process start right after acquiring the first image?

And last question... If you'd switch to the medium frame rate (7frames/s), could you shoot indefinitely in raw on a superfast card?

I simply would like to know if the the full speed of a super fast card can be used by the camera and if not what is the actual fastest write speed of the camera.

Thank you!
