"sutro" quotes this page
on Eyetech's server that says:
Elate is currently available on a number of processors - including x86 and PowerPC - and is also available as a 'hosted' OS (at about 50% efficiency) under Linux - and this is the environment to be used for the Developer System.. The Blizzard PPC/xVision version still needs some fine tuning - currently being undertaken by Haage & Partner - but is expected to be released in a couple of months. On its release this (PPC/xVision) software will form the main upgrade path for the current 'classic' Amiga user, whilst maintaining compatibility with 680x0-based software.

|In reply to Comment 8 (Ben Hermans/Hyperion):|
There seems to be a great deal of confusion here, with reference to an "AMD 500"... now, to point out the obvious for those who have missed it, AMD is a manufacturer. There is a substantial difference between a K6 and K7 (Athlon). The K6 is well known for inferior FPU power to Intel cpus, but the Athlon performs better than a P3 per mhz. Comparing this to a 233 604e you should see that even the fastest accelerated (classic) Amiga is too slow (imho) for any cpu intensive NG Amiga (read : developer box) applications...
