To be honest, before my calculation I never thought that even the fastest cards today are only good for 3 pics/sec RAW+jpeg.
But then, most people are not shooting RAW. So this is equivalent to 9 pics/sec jpeg-fine continuous. More than any DSLR can shoot
P.S.: Most cameras have a hard time transfering 45MB/sec to the card. They normaly capture to internal mem first with a higher burst rate and then save to card at whatever the internal bus (and the card) allows.
