Wang VS 85

This VS85, donated by the Wells River Savings Bank, uses the CP4 processor and was introduced in 1983. It has 32 bit system bus, a 64 bit memory bus and a 16 bit I/O bus. This system is a short single bus version of a VS100. This system could support 4 MB of RAM, 32 Workstations, 1 disk IOP, 4 disk drives, 6 communications lines, and 1 22V25-2 tape IOP for the 2219V tape drive. With the additional 32 kB cache board installed it would support a second disk IOP and 8 disk drives, and 48 workstations.
