VAX 6400 and 6500 systems support optional vector processors implementing the
vector extensions to VAX Architecture defined in VARM 2nd ed.

I'm salivating at that machine too, but I have nowhere near the room for it.
And he said he wouldn't give just the boards. (If I had VAXBI and XMI boards,
perhaps I could find a smaller backplane / card cage unit to house them than
that huge VAX 6000 cabinet. I'm pretty sure that standard VAXBI card cages,
like used in VAX 8200, are just simple 19" rackmount units no bigger than a
high-end rackmount MicroVAX, and it is rumored that there once existed an XMI
backplane / card cage unit of this form factor as well.)
