E5620 is 8 core 2.4GHz
X5650 is 12 core 2.66GHz
I have the dual 5620 Mac Pro. I can trade up my CPUs and actually make a profit!

Higher yield means that more of them leave the assembly line without flaws.

Higher yields=higher dependability. They'll last longer under stress.
There's enough supply and demand to inflate prices on the 8 core Xeon's. If there was too much demand but not enough supply, prices would probably sky rocket. If there wasn't too much demand, but a huge supply then prices would plummet A good number of times, used Xeon's go pretty cheap anyway.
It's all economics and trading. =]
