Reasons for an adaptor.

1) GPU performance in an FPGA can not match the GPU performance of even a semi-modern gfx card.

2) A gfx card offers more parallel processing power.

3) SAGA currently has no support for 3D.

Reasons against an adapter.

1) Cost.

2) Transferring data through a bus is slower and increases latency.

3) Standardized integrated Amiga 3D gfx may be preferable to add in a FPGA SoC later, especially if planning an ASIC.
