It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

Yes. Why do you think it wouldn't it be supported?

The Dell PowerEdge R710 system runs/rans with the Nehalem/Westmere processor lines. That's only one generation removed from the current. E.g. 2009 through 2012.

Dell outlines the firmware revisions needed to run Windows 2012 with the R710 here. Also see the compatibility matrix here.
