Really fast 68k FPGA systems simply does not exist.
Not particularly fast, that device.
And, as has been said before, no fpga project currently developed can outperform a fast 060.
@Andreas, thanks for the info.
I have always been impressed by the 040.
Motorola was still using that core after most 68K development had ceased.
As to PPCs, Motorola's offshoot Freescale continues to develop them (and IBM continues to move the Power line forward).
There are low cost PPCs that could be used.
Andreas has mentioned the e5500 cored T10XX line several times.
A board based on these would not be significantly more expensive than a custom X64 board.[ Edited by Jim 23.08.2015 - 16:10 ]
