@Zetr0 yes "revive" is kind of a relative phrase. Maybe "boost" would have been a better word in this case.
But I'm pretty sure that someone, somewhere will make it work in the end, even if its just a heavy hack with little usefulness.

As for Atari Jaguar mentioned way down. Trying to make use of the 68080 in that architecture sounds like a nightmare ;-)
The 68000 in that one didn't really do much of the "heavy lifting". It was enough to do what it was supposed to do between the two main Chips "Tom" and "Jerry". I imagine a 68080 would be severely bottlenecks by the rest of the architecture. That is, if you wanted to program for it the way you were supposed to and not simply run everything in software and ignore the Tom "GPU".
