Can I install Xeon Platinum and Xeon Phi together on a dual CPU motherboard

Hi there,

I a trying to build an HPC rig, so that I can experiment with Xeon Phi 7250. I have decided to buy a new motherboard - dual LGA3647 and install in the first socket a regular Xeon Platinum (8160) and put the Xeon Phi in the second socket.

Do you think this is possible and will be working if I use MS Server 2019 (to utilize all the cores of Xeon Platinum) and Intel Parallel Studio?

Or is such configuration NOT ADVISABLE, because it is not Symmetrical e.g. CPU 1 is Xeon Platinum while CPU 2 is Xeon Phi 7250 ?

Any advice and / or comments are highly appreciated as my experience with Phi is zero :).

No, I do not believe that you can do this. Note this snippet from the Xeon datasheets:
