Depending on the hardware model Nutanix offers one or multiple choices on CPU per Node: 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 44 cores. None of the hardware platforms offer all of the above processor configurations. Nutanix current hardware platforms provide up to 5 different CPU confgurations.
The NX-1000 series (NX-1065-G6 submodel), the NX-3000 series (NX-3060-G6 submodel ) and the NX-8000 series (NX-8035-G6 submodel) currently support 1st generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Skylake). The NX-6000 series stil lacks a submodel that supports 1st generation Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake) processors.
Nutanix still provides multiple native models and submodels that offer a choice of previous generation Intel Xeon processors (Broadwell). From the Nutanix OEM partners, Dell XC-series and Lenovo ThinkAgile HX series ship with Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake) processors. Nutanix on Cisco UCS (M4/M5) and HPE Proliant (G9/G10) offer the choice of 1st Generation Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake) and previous generation (Broadwell) Intel Xeon processors.
Nutanix native models and Dell EMC XC (Nutanix OEM) models do not yet ship with 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors.
Lenovo ThinkAgile HX (Nutanix OEM) models already ship with 2nd with 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors.
