EMIB requires the chips it's used with to be designed for it. This 48-core CPU just appears to be two existing Cascade Lake SP chips shipped in a single package, communicating through the same links they would be in a multi-socket system.

If Intel designs a new chip specifically for use in such a system, they would probably use EMIB.
