    32-way SMP is a new feature in vSphere 5 and is only available to VM hardware version 8 guests. The Enterprise Plus license tier is required for 32-way SMP (as per the answer diagram).

    This is VCP510 -> vSphere 5.1 (NO 5.0) –> Enterprise Plus 64 vCPU, Enterprise 32vcPU, Standard 8vCPU.
    Please admins, correct it
