Maybe, it probably depends on the firmware / compatibility of the Mediator/Prometheus/G-REX to support multi-master PCI systems.

Also it would be more like an AmigaOne with bolted-on Amiga rather than the current PowerUp solution.

You would almost certainly need a PCI gfx card as accessing the Amiga chipset via PCI will probably not work well (if at all).

Sorry to piss on your parade, but unless you are a good Amiga coder who knows the ins and outs of AmigaOS 3.x and AmigaOS4.0 you don't have a chance. If Hyperion chose not to develop down this route, you can trust that it was for a good reason.

Yeah, I did speculate there was no firmware, good to know for sure.
