Does K-3 support UHS-2 SD cards?

Ricoh website says:

Q: Does the K-3 support UHS Speed Class?

A: The K-3 supports SDXC UHS-1 Memory Cards (listed in the Specifications Table and Catalog).
Has any one tried using UHS-2 SD cards with K-3 and noticed if the write speed has increased?

They will fall back to uhs-i speeds since the K-3 lacks the second row of pins.
