But are all CPU's the same physical shape and size?

Like all Intel chips are the same and all AMD chips are the same?

Nope, they change pretty significantly depending on the socket, LGA 775 CPUs are significantly different shaped from an AM3 CPU or an LGA 1366 CPU.

Why?

Check out the different reviews of CPUs. They might include a shot of the chip. Some CPUs are covered by an Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) so you can't see the size of the die, but you can see how "large" the chip might be. If you're really curious.
