Heck, you could do whatever you want in pure software with that much speed. (Way more than a Neo Geo ever could)
Some high color chunky modes would be nice tho. (I'm not talking P96 here, but bare metal accessible modes)
We'll see how it'll turns out
Edit: what about Paula implementation, is that even on the roadmap?
If the team had no ambition to improve current AGA then yes CPU blit would suffice.. however, if the old Natami specs are anything to go by (and I think they are) then the blitter will be improved with stuff like 3d functions with maintained backward compatibility..

P96 mode would be considered as a chunky mode controllable by the (improved) copper.

As for Paula.. see post #11
