The Intel 4th Gen Xeon Scalable Processor family is classified into Max (9000), Platinum (8000), Gold (6000 and 5000), Silver (4000), and Bronze (3000) levels. Higher tiers can provide more advantages or capabilities (e.g. bigger SGX enclaves) than the lower tiers. Platinum processors are capable of running up to 8 sockets in a system, Gold can support 4, and Silver up to 2; however, these abilities are also dependent on the model. Truly, only the -H processors within the IMDB/Analytics/Virtualization Optimized bracket are capable of scaling beyond two sockets.
