    Might be correct for vSphere 4 and hardware version 7 (allowing for 4 NICs and up to 8 CPUs), but for vSphere 5 and hardware version 8:
    Having vSphere 5.x and hardware version 8 implemented in your environment offers these advantages:
    •Up to 32 vCPUs per virtual machine
    •Maximum of 1 TB memory per virtual machine
    •Increased performance
    •Flexibility when creating, deploying, and transferring virtual machines
