Dell T7500 with PERC H700 not seeing all 3TB of a Seagate Constellation 3TB SAS HDD

I have a T7500 with an H700 controller with 4  Seagate ST33000650SS 3TB 7.2K SAS drives attached. In the controller configuration it shows them as 2775GB sized drives. Why? I have the latest H700 firmware upgrade installed.

The driver on the perc does not support more than 2TB drives so the rest is lost.  Just as INTEL RAID does not support larger than 2TB containers.  INTEL RST requires 10.1 or higher for the same reason.
