The Ultimate-64 board
By Thom Holwerda on 2017-07-13 20:48:54

It's time to announce the upcoming new "Ultimate-64" board!

In order to sustain the love for the Commodore 64, with failing machines, power supplies and flaky old connectors, I proudly present a new main board for your beloved C64 case:

What is it?!  This board is a hardware implementation (FPGA) of the entire C64, and it includes the Ultimate-II+ as well.  An ALL IN ONE solution!

It will be produced in small batches, and the creator hopes to be able to sell it for around 200 dollars. That's a pretty great price to give a C64 a lease on life.

That one is out of stock, and the MK2 requires C64 chips. The Ultimate 64 is all FPGA from my understanding, so for someone who doesn't already have a C64 to pull chips out of, it's a nice alternative. I signed up to get one, then I'll see if I can track down a C64 to swap out the board for. Then without having to worry about monitors and such (since the Ultimate 64 has built on HDMI) I can hook it up to my large screen in my living room for some old gaming!
