I do not think Nikon needs to rush out with a Z6 iii or Z7 iii - by all accounts there is still scope to improve af using the existing chips in version ii. In the same way that the A7IV has benefitted from the r&d of the A1 to get improved autofocus, it is not beyond the realms of possiblity that the mid level Nikons will benefit from the Z9s improved af.

If 10 bit video is important then that is an area where Nikon are now falling behind but other companies have managed to provide 10 bit as firmware update so I do not know if that is beyond what the Z6 ii could do.

The A7IV uses the Bionz XR (the A1 has dual Bionz XR) which has 8x the processing power of the Bionz used in the A7III.
