2 x 16-core CPU = 2 licenses

Hello.
VMware vSphere has always been licensed per CPU.
In versions prior to 7, the CPU Cores were not considered, only the CPU itself.

Starting with vSphere 7.0, one CPU license covers one CPU with up to 32 cores. If а CPU has more than 32 cores, you need additional CPU licenses.
