Thank you everyone for the followups to my inquiry.
I did some deep searching at the compaq site and came
up with some good details to supplement what others have

Here is a link to a pdf document:


According to the book...


"MicroVAX chip introduced for the MicroVAX II,
DIGITALS first 32-bit microprocessor."

"VMS V4.2 shipped."

It's nice to see others have kept MVII's up and
running. It may be a challenge getting it all booted
up and such but I sense it will be good and stable
once it is running.
