@AmigaBlitter

This was already possible for the hard ip processors in the Xilinx FPGAs. For example through the user coprocessor interface of the ppc405 cores in some virtex-4 fpgas.
So this patent is more of the same. Only the definition of the subject changed. Instead of an FPGA with cpu cores this is a processor with FPGA resources.
FPGA fabric is slow compared to a Ryzen. So I expect that these instuctions extension option is only used for complex instuctions for specific work loads.

Yup, nothing new. There has been Xeons with fpga's since 2018. It's safe to say that it won't be available on desktop offerings in near future.

@AmigaBlitter

And the FPGA on MiSTer has a build in Dual Core ARM 800MHz MCU, that is used under Minimig for reading hard files and ADFs from SD-Cards.
