I've found a Titan System Manual from 1988
https://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/Compaq-DEC/WRL-86-1.pdf

It's a curious machine with a number of unusual instruction set features -
an 8 bit CPU process ID hooked into the virtual memory system, register
banks selected using the processor status register - otherwise RISC
flavoured. Did it have any successors?

Tony.

The Minch: Southwest 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8 for a time, decreasing 2 or 3
and becoming cyclonic later. Moderate or rough. Rain or showers. Moderate or
good, occasionally poor.
