No, the RE-3.0 is the RE-600, Pentium III 600MHz model, with either 512MB 
or 2048MB of DRAM.

The RE table goes something like this:

Model   Processor          Max RAM  Original Platform   Upgrade Available
-----   ---------          -------  -----------------   -----------------
RE-1.0  Pentium 233mhz     256MB    M40 classic         -
RE-2.0  Pentium 2 333MHz   768MB    M5/10/20/40e/160    M40
RE-3.0  Pentium 3 600MHz   2048MB   T series            M5/10/20/40(e)/160
RE-4.0  Pentium 4 1600MHz  2048MB   M320                T series
RE-5.0  Celeron 400MHz     768MB    M7i/M10i only       -

Technically RE-1.0 and RE-2.0 have been EOL'd, though RE-2.0 is still 
probably the most common RE you will find in production. RE-1.0 is too 
crappy to actually run, but RE-2.0 still gets the job done and runs across 
all platforms that take the teknor/kontron based cared (i.e. not M#i's).
