For those installing Oracle SE, what systems meet the 4 socket limit?

Trying to understand Oracle and their licensing is giving me an ulcer. We're looking at moving some of our systems from EE to SE. I understand that for the most part a socket=CPU except in the case of a multi-chip module. For a multi-chip module, each module counts as a socket.

We're currently a Sun (oops Oracle) Solaris environment and it appears to me that the current Oracle SPARC chips are all multi-module chips and not-eligible for SE. So that would seem to limit us to Intel/AMD hardware. So those of you who have deployed SE. What servers are you deploying on?
