Windows 3.x memory modes
« on: September 13, 2015, 01:21:17 PM »

Windows 3.0 was the only version of Windows that could be run in three different memory modes:

Real mode, intended for older computers with a CPU below Intel 80286, and corresponding to its real mode;

Standard mode, intended for computers with an 80286 processor, and corresponding to its protected mode;

386 Enhanced mode, intended for newer computers with an Intel 80386 processor or above, and corresponding to its protected mode and virtual 8086 mode.[12]
