Starting with Generation 10 PowerEdge (PE) servers Dell adopted a standardised naming convention. The convention starts with the server type: R for rack-mount, T for tower and M for modular/blades. The first number indicates the number of sockets in the system: one to four for one socket, five to eight for two sockets, and nine for four sockets; this is followed by a number to indicate the generation of the server, and the last digit indicates whether this system uses Intel or AMD platform (0 represents Intel, 5 represents AMD).

For example: The PowerEdge R710 is a Rack-mountable, 11th Generation server with 2 sockets and an Intel CPU.
