Commodore USA reanimates the C64
April 07, 2011
Nearly 30 years ago Commodore Business Machines released what was to become the most popular home computer ever made - the CBM 64. It had a CPU that ran at 1MHz, just 64K of RAM and ran programs loaded over several minutes from cassette tape. To people of a certain age it was for a while the most desirable object ever created by mankind.
Commodore USA are giving us the chance to re-live these moments again with their all-new Commodore 64. Under the hood courtesy of a standard Mini-ITX motherboard is an Intel Atom dual core processor running 1,800 times faster than the original, paired with an NVidia ION 2 GPU.
DocLorren of course stuffed an early VIA Mini-ITX motherboard into an original C64 chassis for our very own website way back in 2003. We're saying nothing.
