The specs for the "early 2008" Mac Pro seem to match what I have.
Although, it would be nice if there were an easier/clearer way to make that determination.
I searched Apple's Support site for the user manual. I enter my system's serial number and it comes back with the Mac Pro (Mid 2010) User Guide.
It's odd that Apple refers to Mac Pros by year on their site. You can't get that info when you choose About This Mac from the systems Menu.
Thanks anyway. I think you have confirmed my guess.

Oddist namning convention, yes. Could be called Penryn Mac Pro too, or Mac Pro UEFI or just Mac Pro Xeon 3G (3rd generation) would suit me fine.
But don't want to confuse or get technical and seem like we care about what's under the hood now do we.
The Support/MacPro page does have link to various yrs manuals, specs while sounds like you just went to some main page for current model only.
Apple Developer Notes went into legacy archive and can no longer even use bookmarks to old technical manuals that were helpful in understanding and seeing schematics.
