Why aren’t cpus bigger?

Not applicable
I’m new to the whole building a pc thing. I’ve been thinking about building a rig for the new flight simulator but a few months ago I probably couldn’t name the parts of a pc. So my question is: why aren’t processors bigger? Surely they would be cheaper and more powerful if they were the size of a graphics card, especially in a pc where size of the machine doesn’t really matter. Maybe I’m just dumb but this has been bugging me for a while.
Computers come in all sorts of form factors... Power consumption and heat dissipation. Have you seen the size of Threadrippers?

Anyway, this is not the place to be asking this type of question. Better off asking it over on the PCMR Reddit or some tech forum...
