8086/8088 was more similar to 8080/8085/Z80 with some wild addressing modes added. And segment registers instead of bank switching, which despite complaints about segmented memory is an improvement over banking. 68K was a much better designed chip but of a similar era and capability. But 68000 was about 2x the silicon area as an 8086, so I’d guess 3x the cost to manufacture.

Sadly, industry technical jargon doesn’t always conform to strict grammatical prescriptivism.:wink:
