Brush up? I'm old enough to remember it.
That was what TI and Intel initially produced.
And IBMs choice of the 8088 was particularly pathetic for a costly machine.
That gave the system an 8 bit data path to memory, whereas the 8086 at only slightly more cost would have given a 16 bit data path to memory.

Don't presume to lecture me about microprocessors, I was using computers before the microprocessor existed.
My first personal computer was a hand built SWTPC system, and in the '80s and '90s I worked for a company that designed and built 68K based multitasking multiuser systems.

In laughing out loud, you are only making a fool of yourself.
And I have no time for fools.
