I would imagine that anything Stata Corp offers has been tested on a
corresponding cluster. If they have MP32, it must have been tested on
a 32-thread computer. If they have MP256, it must have been tested on
a 256-core cluster. If you need MP1024... that's probably a very
special request, and whether Stata Corp. has had an opportunity to
test MP1024 is an open question.

I've worked with MP4 and MP8, cannot complain about either of them :).
