Sorry, no. The m76 has a Rigel. It isn't even similar to the VS4k. The
VS4k machines have different Ethernet (SGEC insted of LANCE) and SCSI
(asc insted of NCR).
VS4k VLC has SOC
VS4k60 has Mariah
VS4k90 and above have NVAX
MV4k200 has SOC
MV3k100m40 has SOC
MV3k100m8x has Mariah
VAX4k300 has Rigel
VAX4k400 and above as well as VAX4k1xx and MV3k100m9x have NVAX.

VS3100 m30/38/40/48 are almost identical. The only differences are the
enclosure and speed.

Looks so. It seams to support only NMOS-VAX (VS2k), CVAX (VS3100
m30/38/40/48) and maybe SOC. I think SOC is the CPU in the VXT2k.
