Reading the whole thread again makes me think of this another way.
Say, you take a standard K6-3+ as base and you manage to get the original design. It was kooked with the 180nm process.
If you would kook one at say 45nm (which is prehistoric today as well) the chip may be able to run at 1,3v and 900MHz. Then it only needs a bit volt converter, more L2 cache and different multiplier interpretation and all should be well.
Take any S3, S7 or 370 CPU and fill in the same...
Sounds easy, probably is less easy... But mighty be possible (but definitely not by me)
Stuck at 10MHz...
