What about to support in master what man can currently purchase? If so,
then based on my limited research it looks like the cpu family
(orderable) goes back to 2016/2015 which support architecture of more or

One exception found is Vertex86 cpus which still sells and boards are
available and which are compatible only with i586/p5 from as you noted
