AmigaOne x1000 is in production with an XS1-L2 XMOS chip

Hi all, I am a complete Xmos beginner but an Amiga veteran.

The AmigaOne X1000 is dual core PPC based system.

Does anyone here have any insight as to whether a PPC AmigaOne X1000 compatible Xcore dev kit is in development?

What practical applications do you think the Xcore chip will offer a PPC desktop system?
Can the Xcore chip be used to emulate other classic chips? Can it be used to interface an ARM based Minimig to the AmigaOne?

Any discussion welcome!

I recall reading about an FPGA Amiga being built.

I followed a link to youtube and watched a video of it running - it was good!

If an FPGA can do it, I see no reason why an XMOS cpu can't?

Below is a link to a video on youtube demonstrating one of the projects.

I was certain I read about an Amiga 1200 as well...
