It's pretty obvious to take an existing hardware base with the necessary features and program it to the new requirement.
They will have needed to upgrade the Broadcom chip to a later version and to add more memory. Probably just re-using the form factor, PSU and front panel controller (Micom)

More memory: OK, Broadcom chip... Speaking hypothetically, it is possible part of the chip is reconfigurable under software/firmware/boot loader control.

Yes, it's possible, but I believe they need to double its speed (to 950 MHz). There might be some leverage in the fact that it's dual core though.
