Given that they come from 1984 or so, they should work with the
11/780, 11/785, 11/750, 11/730, 11/725, and probably later VAXen with
a Unibus.  What's less clear to me is how long the drivers were
supported.  IIRC, the docs on Bitsavers mention support for VMS 3.x.
I would rather expect support through VMS 4.X, but I wouldn't count on
an SMP-friendly driver for VMS 5.X and newer unless support was
specifically mentioned on the SPD.  A lot of older stuff didn't get
brought forward with VMS 5.X drivers.
