Don't forget the Xeon Clovertown and the Kentsfield (or whatever it's 
called these days) which are basically Core-2 Quartets.  (Solo, Duo, 
Trio, Quartet?)  Both have been moved by Intel from 2007 to possibly Q4 
2006:  http://news.com.com/2100-1006_3-6096192.html

And note that it should fit in the same processor socket as the Core 
2... so in theory very little or nothing has to be done to upgrade the 
Mac Pro.
