It's beyond crazy. It's actually impossible. AFAIK Modern GPUs are technologically beyond any FPGA known to man with billions of transistors, beyond GHz klockspeeds and recently 4096 bit memory architectures (HBM).

However, adding some 1998-era 3d functions could offer some new fun challanges for devs. (Thinking of the guy that rewrote part of the quake engine to use the DSP in the Atari Falcon for example).
And this of course, would sit on top of superAGA for 2D which would be fully compatible with AGA only without the obvious limits. ;-)
