That's not the case. First of all the benchmarks shown are slower than a 33MHz 040. Perhaps you are not familiar with FUSION. It is far more stable, more compatible, and hands down faster, than Shapeshifter.

The Apollo/Phoenix CPU core has a deeper pipeline, a more parallel advanced design and is highly optimized for the FPGA it is in. The TG68 would need major changes to achieve 68060@50MHz performance.
Perhaps, if TG68 was always going to be used.
