High CPU droplet CPUs (Xeon Platinum 8168 vs Xeon E5-2697A v4)

"Access some of Intel's® most powerful CPUs including Xeon Platinum 8168 (Skylake) with a 2.7 Ghz Clock Speed and Xeon E5-2697A v4 (Broadwell) with a 2.6 Ghz Clock Speed. "

High CPU introduction page states that 2 different CPUs are used for high CPU droplets. Does this mean some data centers use 8168 and some use E5-2697A? Or are they mixed in every data center? Do you have a list of CPUs used in each datacenter?

  • I'd love an answer to this as well. I've tried finding a Skylake 8168 and so far haven't seen one in AMS3, FRA1, LON1 or NYC3.
