How do you differentiate a standard ASA5500-X to a FPWR model?

We are looking for details on how to confirm if a Cisco ASA55**-X firewall can be considered a FPWR model (EG: ASA5515-FPWR-K9 or ASA5555-FPWR-K9). Cisco's documentation is not terribly clear about the specific details they should have.  Is there anything in particular we should be looking for in the console?  
 
We have several ASA5555/ASA5515 with the following response from the ‘show version’ command.  Is this enough, or are there other factors we need to take into account?
 
ciscoasa# show version
 
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.9(1)3
Firepower Extensible Operating System Version 2.3(1.54)
Device Manager Version 7.9(1)151
 
Any confirmation on these things is much appreciated.

Depending on your point of view all next Gen '-X' firewalls are FirePOWER firewalls. And while it it possible to purchase the hardware without the SSD in them that FirePOWER is installed on, thats the only difference.

Any firewall ttat ends in a 6-X, 8-X, or 5-X (with the exception of the 5505 of course) can run firepower services
