x86 memory segmentation refers to the implementation of memory segmentation on the x86 architecture. Certain portions of the memory may be addressed by a single index register without changing a 16-bit segment selector. In real mode or V86 mode, a segment is always 65,536 bytes in size (using 16-bit offsets). In protected mode, a segment can have variable length. Segments can overlap.

“Men like my father cannot die. They are with me still, real in memory as they were in flesh, loving and beloved forever. How green was my valley then.”
