Guys, your arguments are starting to get more than ridiculous. Could you please get back to discuss facts rather than fiction?
you should know Firebee has no Combel emulation and Videl is buggy and very limited
Yes, the FireBee doesn't have a 1:1 Combel implementation. But why should it (or any other modern design), actually?
Atari claimed the Combel would be the Falcon's "central system control". I'd rather say: it's the main culprit of the crippled Falcon design. Everything that didn't fit elsewhere has been thrown in there. You can basically say it's _the_ one chip that limits the Falcon's performance since it limits the design's capability to ST RAM only. I really wouldn't consider a "cycle exact Combel" something desirable for a modern design.
The FireBee has a 32 bit address bus to 32 bit wide DDR RAM providing 64 bit of data every 132 MHz cycle as opposed to the 24 bit address/16 bit data bus the Combel has at much slower speed. Why should anybody want to limit themself to the original? The Vampire's design is probably very similar except - at least to my knowledge - being limited to single data rate.
And yes, it's true the FireBee's Videl implementation still has some bugs that need to be fixed.
But what makes it "very limited"? All the Falcon registers are there, all standard Falcon/ST video modes are there. Additionally, you have 8 bit linear planes, 15 bit full colour and 24 bit true colour modes with freely programmable pixel clock and 128 Mbytes of fast video memory capable to do Full HD at reasonable refresh rate. What - except the Blitter that's not implemented yet (but not part of the Videl anyway) - are you missing?
also you should know emulation Shifter,MMU, GLUE, Yamaha is limited in MiST or Suska - isn't cycle exact.
Probably true for the MiST, but not so for the Suska. But anyway, why does it matter? If you want to have a 1:1 Falcon replacement, it would. If you want a Falcon, go and get one, a real Falcon at real Falcon's speed is the most cycle exact replacement for a real Falcon. But just as slow as a real Falcon. You just can't stay cycle exact if you want more speed than the original.

This, however, is sad, but very true.
You can download the complete Combel VHDL code from Suska github. It's there.
I've never seen a "Suska github". What's that supposed to be?
Can't resist on that one: "It's there. And it's great. You will love it".

That might be true, but I would assume it's something you can't know. To my knowledge, nobody except the SuperVidel team has ever seen the code.
