vSphere 5 is licensed on a per-processor basis. Each physical processor (CPU) in a server needs to have at least one vSphere 5 processor license key assigned to be able to run vSphere.
See the PDF for more detail http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vsphere_pricing.pdf

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

VMware did at one time, have a vRAM TAX, but they changed it. It's gone, because Licensees were not happy with the change after 5.0 was originally launched.

Article you have copied and pasted is out of date, it refers to 5.0!

With the 5.1 license is based on Per CPU and memory limit is based on maximum mention in the configuration guide.

If you are planning for free ESXi5.1 then the memory limit is 32GB but in ESXi5.5 there is no memory limit for the Free ESXi
