Actually, the 11/45 came in 3 variations originally:
* upto 64KW of MOS on the fastbus
* upto 64KW of Bipolar on the fastbus
The 11/50 was identical to the 11/45 and came standard with either MOS
or Bipolar on the fastbus.
The 11/55 is sort of half way between the 11/45 and 11/70 CPU-wise.
Most of the CPU boards are from the 11/45, but there are a number that
came from the 11/70 (including the FPU boards). It is a distinct CPU
from the 11/45 (as designated by the KB11D).
