    Platinum has certain HA/RAS advantages over former E7, so yes banks will certainly switch things over - i've seen presentations for 4S/8S systems already (DL980 Gen9/10, exact model number TBA) and, by the INSANE cost of E7, they cost nearly the same as last gen.

    Gold/Silver have advantages and downsides over E5, cost wise E5 wins.

    AMD, by price and useful addons - namely PCIe lanes - beats either currently, and unlike most Xeon Platinum CPUs are actually available already in qty.

    Omnipath is special for a special market so i'll ignore it here, also as AMD has nothing really to compare to (same for Xeon Phi coprocessors).
