PowerEdge 2950 Generation 1 Vs Generation 2
I wonder if someone could please explain to me the difference between the PowerEdge 2950 Generation 1 and Generation 2 systems.
I have searched and search but am struggling to find any literature which outlines the difference (I know there must be some).
I am mainly interested in the Motherboard spec and processor support.
As I believe (which may be wrong) the G1 will support 5000 series and 5100 series DUAL CORE C*** ONLY but not Quad Core, where as the G2 Will support 5000 & 5100 Dual Core along with the 5300 Series Quad Core. Is this correct ? Are there any other differences?
I am aware G1 or G2 will not support 5200 or 5400 Series but other than that I can not find any documents to say any other differences. could someone please advise.
