Seth and Pete were discussing the PDP11-23...

Um... Am I way out here? Doesn't the 23 support 22 bit addressing? And
I never before heard of a 16 bit Qbus! ISTRT the F11 processor is
settable between 18 and 22 bit (128KW, 256KB and 2MW, 4MB respectively).
The 18 bit setting is used in the 23 on 18 bit Qbuses and in the 24 on
unibuses. The 22 bit setting is used on 22 bit Qbuses, but you need
extra hardware to use it in the 24 (i.e. on unibus).

Just my half groat's worth.
