How Many Nodes Are in a Snowflake Virtual Warehouse?

Snowflake’s virtual warehouses come in a variety of different sizes, from X-Small to 6X-Large. But how many CPU nodes does each virtual machine actually have available for data analytics queries? Here’s the answer.

Snowflake warehouses aren’t exactly multi-processor computing clusters with hundreds of nodes, but it can make sense of thinking of Snowflake credits as analogous to nodes, as illustrated by this image of dozens of snowflakes falling at sunset.
