Why does everyone assume that the FPGA cores are the limitation for the Natami?  The '050 core and Robin core and Tami core aren't even required for a release.  They can release an '060-based experimental Natami today if they had the hardware working right.

Got it!  The limitation isn't the cores!  thanx!
What is it then?

The limitation is that all of those cores that I just mentioned are tested in simulators rather than actual hardware.

Oh, so its the cores..  um..  er..  eh...  but .. I thought.. um...

Amiga 1200 w/ ACA1230/28 - 4G CF, MAS Player, ext floppy, and 1084S.
Amiga 500 w/ 2M CHIP and 8M FAST RAM, DCTV, AEHD floppy, and 1084S.
Amiga 1000 w/ 4M FAST RAM, DUAL CF hard drives, external floppy.

I was just restating the fact that the hardware isn't available yet.  They need available hardware to be able to do the testing.

the way I look at it is this:

If the natami materializes and its totally awesome, I win, because I can buy one, and it'll be totally awesome

If it materializes and it isn't awesome, it'll still be an amiga that can be bought, so at least its cool.

If it never materializes.. well, I didnt pay anyone any money, so what did I lose?

Im always amazed at the willingness of computer geeks to be so staunchly anti-technology and anti-tinkering. If some dudes in a basement kitbash something cool, then that's cool for all of us.
