+ - New x86 chips could create VMware licensing issues->

Submitted by BDPrime
BDPrime (1012761) writes "New 8- and 12-core x86 processors from Intel and AMD could cause big VMware licensing cost jumps. According to VMware's multicore licensing policy, certain versions of vSphere require an upgrade to pricier versions if the servers are running on chips with more than 6 processing cores."
