PCIe?

Does anyone know if Apple has already moved to PCI-express or not? They're starting to lag behind (more than before) with this latest jump in hardware. They have the 64-bit thing down (after 10.3), but Intel and AMD already have dual core systems out (that is two processing cores in a single chip) already. I know at least of one Opteron setup that allows the user to have two dual core chips running at once (that = 4 processors and a max of 16GB of ram to access). I would think that PCIe & dual core would be of real interest to the graphics techies that use Mac. Furthermore, the 4 processors would really allow Apple to multitask like never before (one area where x86 architecture has beat it consistently.)
