Default vertex II and powerpc core

Was the Xilinx powerpc core ever produced for the Vertex II device?

Yes, this family was called Virtex-II Pro and has been in volume
production for quite some time now.

Reading this in a different way,

Xilinx does not supply a soft PPC core. The 405PPC core is a full ASIC
implementation by IBM, for Xilinx, in the Virtex II Pro Family of devices.

This hard core is also the lowest power 405PPC in 130nm technology of
all of the cores available in 130nm.

Thanks to all for the response.

I have a Vertex II device and prototype board and not the Vertex II
Pro.
I suspected that it was not available on the Vertex II device (nonPro
versiont) but thought I'd ask anyway.
