Seems like the APM86xxx's Power Architecture core(s) may be complemented by a nice co-processor core:
I found an interesting PDF presentation file dating August 2010 over there
The most interesting pages are #16, which shows a product roadmap mentioning "Future Viper SoCs", and #18, which reads "Viper Technology -> Breakthrough Performance at Disruptive Cost Basis".
To my surprise, the roadmap on page 16 still contains the Titan core based "Gemini" (APM83290)
, which had been semi-officially declared dead one month before
Further insightful (but older) documents are this one
(August 2009) and that one
(October/November 2009). Both documents's pages 11 show a product roadmap including not only Titan (still vivid at that time) but also dummy-named products "PPC-A" ("Avail 1H 2010"), "PPC-B" ("Avail 2H 2010") and "PPC-C" ("Avail 1H 2012").
