Multiple physical CPU support in Windows 10

I was wondering whether Windows 10 has the same CPU restrictions as found in Windows 7 and 8. In both those versions only 1 physical CPU is supported for Home Premium, and 2 for Pro and Ultimate (though they all support multiple cores).

Will this be the same for Windows 10? Or will all versions support multi-CPU setups?

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the FAQ makes no mention of CPU restrictions, nor do any readily available comparison tables.

Is there any more information available on this subject?
