Classic Amiga really need better procesor than 68k.
This procesor should be bigendian beacuse all old software for amiga is bigendian,
PPC is of course ideal choice for classic Amiga, but other like mips, sparc are also welcome.
If you want faster CPUs then the choice is between x64 and ARM (which is slowly but very steadily catching up), everything else is essentially dead or on its way to microprocessors heaven.
Amiga-s were fast in their time but their time is over, we should appreciate them for what they were, not what they could have been. I understand how technically thrilling FPGAs and stuff can be but these chimeras will never be Amiga-s, they can only be Amiga-inspired.
I think they cannot revive external
interest for this wonderful machine, only internal pre-existing interest. And if there is ever a market again for Amiga games in my opinion it will be for the stock kittens because of their historical significance.
