Why Duo Digic 6 could only achieve 10 fps?

T2i Digic 4 - 3.7 fps

7D Digic 4 Duo - 8fps

2 Processor, twice the frame rate. OK, made sense back then.

70D Digic 5+ - 7fps

7D II Digic 6 Duo - 10 fps

Why couldn't we expect 14 fps, but only get <50% of the improvement.

In semi-conductor, you would expect that the Digic 6 should have more transistors than Digic 5. So Digic should be able to achieve 8-9 fps easy. Why didn't we see it? A bottleneck somewhere else?  Why glue in another processor for <50% improvement.
