16 byte was called PARAGRAPH
512 bytes was called PAGE ( although today, a page is normally taken as 4096 cos some processors have a pagesize or 4096 bytes )

actually ( if we take the IA-32 architecture and keep apart from the chipset and all that ) we can address or access to 2^46 bytes of memory ( 64 TeraBytes ).


But the last 2 bits of the selector are occupied by RPL field so we have 14bits:32Bits addressing ( even if in those 14 bits the first one is GDT/LDT, it takes part in the final memory addressing indirectly ).
