I've written code that proves it right. Someone once told me that a
80286 couldn't handle ordinary terminal communications at speeds of
38400 bps. I proved that it could, but the comm program I wrote to do
so used polling rather than interrupts to accomplish it. It was
impossible to handle such high speeds with interrupt-driven I/O.
