There is only 1 Xeon line-up that's equal to the desktop lineup, the single socket Xeons (currently the 3000 series). For example my Xeon W3580 in my Mac Pro is equal to my 980X Extreme Edition in my PC, just a different name.
All the other DP or MP series are vastly different.
I'd say your slides are outdated. Intel probably decided to move all variants to the larger socket. Otherwise it would be very strange to use the big socket for the Desktop SNB-E.
Yea for some reason I remember hearing that 1356 was scrapped altogether in favor of 2011. Which if it is the case, is a very wise decision imo, as I suspect that 2011 will offer considerable performance gains over 1366, whereas 1356 won't be as much of a performance improvement over 1366.
