That depends on your definition of 'fly', if you mean modern speeds (60 FPS) or modern HD resolutions (or both at the same time!) then of course the original architecture will not deliver.

But how fast do we really want our retro hardware to be?

Personally I'd be happy if I could run Quake 2 with all the effects enabled at a consistent 15 FPS in 320x240 resolution on my 25 year old hardware. I can confidently predict this would be possible using a fast FPGA (running the Apollo core) even with the existing planar (crippled) AGA chipset.

If we also got a chunky mode with Graffiti then it would be even faster
