I tend to disagree about "runs times are measured in minutes and not hours" statement. Simulating many design types running even on a mid-size FPGA with low-cost ModelSim PE/DE can take hours. Upgrading to ModelSim SE or VCS can improve the performance ~2-10 times. Another option is co-simulation on an off-the-shelf dev board, which can speed up simulation 10+ times. Still cheaper than $64K product, though.

I agree that $64K is a lot of money... but I still think that their technology was pretty clever ... It would be great to hear from someone who had actually used GateRocket's stuff...

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
