Fully 32-bit Agnus, a Paula replacement that can do 24-bit, 48kHz audio, and a 68060+ that has all ops on chip instead of requiring a support library to implement certain functionality.

If you have a KS 1.3 chip, you can only run Workbench 1.x on it, if I'm not mistaken. You'd need a newer ROM to use newer versions of Workbench and other Amiga OS software.
