Well, ok, 5D3 is a single-CPU camera, and can handle only 6 fps.

That's not due to the CPU, which is 17 times faster than DIGIC4, but more likely due to the physical size and weight of the mirror.

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).
