Actually there are a number of enhancements on the CoCo3FPGA beside the fact that it runs the 6809 core at 25 MHz. It has a 640x450 256-color graphics mode. It has an extension to the Orch-90 spec that uses 16-bit DACs. It has an extension to the joystick ADCs that allows for 12-bit resolution. It has a direct memory addressing scheme which uses a 24-bit address register and bypasses the MMU with auto-increment capabilities. I could go on...

Roger Taylor's Coco-On-A-Chip (DE-Nano boards) has a lot of enhancements including graphics modes, where-as Gary's Coco3FPGA (DE1) has little in the way of enhancements that add new features to the original capabilities (aside from connectivity, secondary storage etc).
