Hey everyone! for Esv3 Series on Azure it seems like there are two CPU configurations such as Xeon 8171M and Xeon E5-2673. Is it possible to deploy a specific CPU between these two or is the CPU assignment random?

    I believe these CPU configurations depend on what type of Azure virtual machine you're choosing.
    You'll find all Azure virtual machine series over here:

    As far as I am aware the choice of CPU is determined by what is available at the time of provisioning, you do not have an option to pick which one you want.
