How far can you conditionally branch in a 68k vs an 8086? It's +-32k on the 68k vs +-127 bytes (yikes) on the 8086.

Here are some other interesting questions.

How many registers do you have on the 8086? How many of them can be used for any operation? How many addressing modes do you have? What's the maximum word size you can use? What's the maximum addressing range? How many bits can you shift in a single instruction?

The 8086 is a toy in comparison to the 68k. Like a z80 with delusions of grandeur. You can't compare them. The 68k is superior in every single way.
