Do large format backs exist?

Absolutely yes. You are only focusing on one of the differences
between small format and medium or large.

There are many other advantages, such as noise (the lack of it) and
especially long exposure noise (I'm thinking 5mins to 1 hour
exposures here), higher dynamic range, no AA filter (so fewer moire
issues, or none) etc.

The backs are (nearly) all 16bit, and not only give more detail, but
better colour than small format.

Do large format backs exist ?
How much do they cost ?
Can you tell me the name of one ?
