The most significant difference between the Intel 8085 and 8086 microprocessors is that the 8085 is an 8-bit system and the 8086 is a 16-bit system.

This difference allows the 8086 system to have a much larger set of operational instructions and can make calculations to more significant places.

Note: the 8085 processor does have two 16-bit registers. The pointer and the program counter.
