A base A1200 cannot handle a usable PC-Engine emulator. You'd have to have a very robustly altered A1200 to even run a PC-Engine game at a remotely playable speed and, if using AGA, the graphics...

You ought to know this, surely. The Motorola 68EC020 - which is what came inside the CD32 - is NOT a full-32bit CPU. It's a cost-reduced version of the 68020 and "only" has a 24-bit address bus. This...

That makes it all much simpler. I reckon a good 68030 @ 25MHz, 4MB of Fast RAM and a bunch of good software tricks (with AGA) would suffice.
