Yea, not a bad choice. TF1260 should end up the cheapest while the Warp 1260 brings most features, so it would be motivated with higher price. It looks very feature complete for what you could ask fo...

The Atari ATW800 sold less than a few hundred units. I guess the "general market" wasn't ready. Software support for multi processor hardware wasn't in a good place back then.
