Core 2 Extreme is an extreme edition of the Core 2 Duo family. The quad core you're mentioning, I think is named Core 2 Quad. There is an extreme edition to the quad core called the QX6700.

Well, if you would like to read more about it, then have a look here.

Right now, Intel only has one Quad Core. It is the Extreme Edition. It is called the QX6700. The dual core Extreme Edition is the X6800.

Here's another article to read.
