Yes, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerPC_e500

You were talking about "MorphOS 4.x" at that point, not about OS4.

It's not even clear if a simple recompile will suffice when porting current MorphOS programs to a future MorphOS with modernized API.

What you don't seem to understand is that those 40 "ARM64" boards do not need any touchscreen support, and that anybody is free to port whatever OS to them.

Why even bring the matter of touchscreen support up then?

I see nothing retro about multiple 2+ GHz Cortex-A72 or newer cores.
