There was an announcement last year about a free shareware license for the 68080 cpu. Albeit running at 060 speeds. So we have that covered.

No.

But there is a chance the Vampire V4 can be made to fit a Falcon 030 CPU slot with a passive adaptor board. You'd need a specialised version of the Apollo Core to put in there to make it work. You won't be able to use the Amiga one "as is".


What I'd think would be nicer is the idea of the stand alone Vampire, but as a Falcon. Or even better, one that is Amiga/Falcon switchable...

But I know most FPGAs aren't quite powerful enough (unless they're really expensive).
Atari 8Bits: 800xl, 600xl, XEGS, 800, 130xe, 130xe (fully upgraded (soon!))
Atari STs: 1040STf (broken shifter), 1040STe, Mega STe, TT030, Falcon (CT60e, SuperVidel)

I agree. I wish that the upcoming v4 can have vhdl devs from atari community to reimplement the falcon in vhdl. And eventually allow us to switch from a a1200 to a falcon with a core flash. The altera v that's being used in the v4 costs around $1000+ for the dev kit. Yikes! Although this would make for a more modern and compatible atari clone than even a milan or firebee can dream of...
