This will surprise some people but Apple Insider heard from reliable sources that Apple has contracted the design duties for its next-generation Power Mac motherboard over to Intel.
Specifically, sources said Intel's facilities in Oregon picked up the project in late-October after Apple sought the chip maker's help in meeting deadlines associated with its accelerated transition from PowerPC processors to Intel chips.

Around the same time, Intel quietly formed an "Apple Group" comprised of both engineers and sales staff, several of which are rumored to have been assigned to the Power Mac project.
