Background on Intel Xeon Scalable Single CPU
Intel's Xeon Scalable processors are based on the Skylake SP ("scalable performance") architecture, and feature a wide range of core counts and clock speeds to suit different tasks and budgets. They are split into categories using the names of various metals: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum - along with four digit model numbers denoting where each individual processor falls within the overall family.
All Xeons in this generation can be used as single processors or in pairs on supported motherboards. The Gold and Platinum chips can also be used in 4- and 8-way systems, respectively. Each CPU supports six channels of DDR4 RAM, with a maximum of 768GB of memory per processor on most models.
