Just updated a R330 with dsu:

PowerEdge R330/R230/T330/T130 BIOS; PowerEdge OEMR XL R330/OEMR XL R230 BIOS

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently installed version.
Software application name: BIOS
Package version: 2.3.2
Installed version: 2.0.8

version 2.3.2 was released in November I think. The side channel mitigations are in version 2.4.3 released in February of this year.
