Hi,

I have a question about the 'Xeon Gold 6162 or Xeon Platinum 6162 -- 24 cores, 2.5ghz all-cores-turbo' CPU's:

Why do they have a gold and a platinum version with the same model number? And is it in essence a gold or platinum cpu? I have been trying to figure out why they are so undesirable..

There seem to be two references on the entire internet to Platinum 6162 - this thread, and that CPUWorld page, which uses Platinum 6162 once at the top of the page and then just Xeon 6162 everywhere else. All Intel documentation points to Platinums starting with an 8 or 9. Xeon Gold 6162 specs line up with what you posted. 1.9GHz base, so that's what would be printed on the proc.

Without jumping to conclusions, I'd lean toward a Platinum 6162 being misrepresented. Some might say fake.

Have u run the CPU verification tool yet?
That should be able to tell you if it is a genuine CPU or has been tampered with

AFAIK these Plat.6162 come from cloudflare retired servers, you can buy them form re-it companies.

Anyone know if these Platinum 6162's have any issues slotting into Dell T7920/T7820 or Lenovo P920 towers? Or even Dell RX40 servers?

They are not the most performant scalable Xeons (apparently 1.9 base, 2.5 all core), but 24 cores and apparently they are currently being dumped for dirt cheap.
