"The cost of a server licence can depend on the number of cores (not CPUs). The base price is for 16 cores."

Client of mine paid £8K for server licensing for W2k8R2 a few years back, just asked for upgrade cost to Server 2016 it was £35K, same hardware that runs his loads fine. That was the the charity price, full commercial price £132K for his 7 servers mix of single and dual socket AMD Opteron.

Based on that, I guess the new workstation is going to be based on price gouging.
