Full sensor readout at that rate is the bigger challenge.The 1Dx II used a Dual Digic 6+ processor. Canon have moved on two models later to a Digic 8...so if a Dual Digic 8+ then yes it's feasible. 1DxII 20.2*16 = 323 mp/s. A Dual Digic 7+ should be good for a 1.4x increase...so that's 452mp/s (28mp @ 16fps or 22.6 mp @ 20 fps). Using the same historical formula, a Dual Digic 8+ should be good for 1.4x that...633 mp/s...which is insane processing through put. 30 fps @ 21mp.
Why? Oversampled sensors on video cameras do this routinely. At even higher data rates in fact.Lebs soeed

Oversampled video on cameras such as Panasonic and Sony have just as many pixels, and they shoot at 30fps, some even at 60fps.I’m not sure why. Pixel count maybe?
Not long so ago sony’s A7R sensor was released with a spec sheet max of 5FPS. They currently list as many as 60FPS and as little as 4FPS for full pixel readout.Oversampled video on cameras such as Panasonic and Sony have just as many pixels, and they shoot at 30fps, some even at 60fps.
Some Sony cameras already shoot 24 fps stills with AF/AE tracking, even small point and shoots like the RX100V, and that is a few years old, it is not something special. I expect that the next generation processors will be even faster than that.
Unlikely. There is not much chance of them letting a current Canon insider have access to pre-release systems. It is far more likely to be something like the pro-R that is rumored.It's a Nikon DSLR or a Sony MILC.
Canon is far too conservative to let an ambassador market virally like this. They may prove me wrong, but there is a stronger history of Sony poaching wildlife professionals by buying their influence.
