    Isn't 3.75" the standard regulation size for the king?

    Yes, but from what I understand both FIDE and the USCF allow smaller and larger pieces (within limits) as long as the piece to square size ratio is acceptable. But as DGT only manufactures eboards with 55 mm squares all the top games are effectively limited to approximately 3.75" sets.
