the real hold up is cost. cache is very expensive and including higher sizes would sky-rocket the price of CPUs.
in terms of performance gains, its like having a PC with 64GB RAM as opposed to 8GB RAM. Unless you do some heavy weight processing, you wont see any effect from it.

it look all good feq & cache of 6mb is pretty good

but they are creating for them self a unnecessary bottleneck by doing it HTT 1.0 wiared
