Wrong recording time in Sony's marketing literature?

I'm gearing up for a shoot with several PXW-X70 cameras, and I'm planning my media needs.

 

The literature everywhere (brochure, manual, online specs, etc.) uniformly states that in XAVC 50Mbps mode, you get 120 minutes of recording on a 64GB card.

 

That doesn't line up with mathematics. 120 minutes of 50Mbps equals 45GB, and thus a 64GB card should fit up to 177 minutes.

 

Even if you add PCM audio (which the manual suggest is actually included in the 50Mbps) or account for 1024/1000 SI discrepancies I don't see how those numbers make sense.
