If anything... new processors have extra instructions that old ones don't... not the other way around. You can't just cut an instruction from a processor line or else all the programs that use it will crash and burn when you try to run them.

DOS is an archaic OS. There are built in limits... once your machine surpasses those limits, the OS won't work. You can't run Win95 with 1GB of RAM.... that doesn't mean modern RAM is different from older RAM... just that Win95's limit is lower. And DOS is way older than Win95... and the limits are a lot more restricting.
