Correct. However, a DDR50 mode allows to transfer these 4 bits two times per clock cycle (during signal rise and fall). Not sure if this is used in this case though.

More importantly, there is one important part behind the SDIO interface - a flash memory chip. In real wold is is the memory chip that defines the real-world performance of a SD card, not the SDIO signalling speed.

No, the results are repeatable. I can consistently take 17 extra RAW frames when having the shutter button pressed for 30s burst with Lexar 90mb/s card compared to 45mb/s. When repeating the error is maximum 1 frame.

17 frames is quite a difference, since D600 can only take 5.5 fps when buffering, so it can't be explained as time measuring error.
