The PE2950-III launched in Nov 2007. I would expect any units sold after that to be III.
Physically on the system itself, you can see a Roman numeral III at the top of the left ear board (above the loop handle).

How can I tell which model I have? When I search dell.com with the service tag I see "PowerEdge 2950". Presumably this would show "PowerEdge 2950 III" if I have a III? System ship date was 5/1/2008.

We're just trying to see if we can do 64G memory upgrade. If the system is a I or II model, will a BIOS upgrade turn it into a III?

Thanks in advance,
