To get the 12 frames per second (raw) on the 1Dx, Canon needed 2 Digic 5+ and 1 Digic 4 (just for the autofocus itself).

That isn't just to get to 12 fps. The processing power is required for the metering, AF, tracking, all of which is much more advanced on the 1DX compared to a 7D/5DmkIII.

There are Sony DSLR's that can do 12fps, but which certainly do not have the processing power of the 1DX. So 12fps on one camera isn't always the same as 12fps on another. Certainly though, the physical size to move the parts in a full frame camera require extra engineering and cost compared to an APS-C camera. The 1DX for instance also has carbon fibre shutter blades to lower the weight, reduce vibration and add to the shutter life.
