FPGA Commodore coming soon


  • FPGA Commodore coming soon

    A C65 NOT the proposed FPGA
    Above is a C65, one of the many systemsproposed to be included in the FPGA.
    A group of Commodore enthusiasts are looking to rise the Commodore machines back from the dead in a similar to how the ZX Spectrum (Next) has. The joy of FPGA has really opened up some incredible possibilities.

    This wonderful concept has borrowed many of the ideas afforded the Spectrum Next, aside from the obvious FPGA usage, it will be made to fit inside the original casing of a C64. Below is a Youtube video which is spoken in German. However, if you apply Closed Captions (subtitles) and then from the 'Settings' button choose "Auto Translate" and select "English" from the menu. Youtube affords a reasonable & legible translation.

    • Vega+ stripped of Sinclair and ZX Spectrum brand
      According to the BBC, the RCL Vega+ console has lost it's right to use the Sinclair logo due to all the bumbling mishaps RCL have done. Sky, who own the rights to Amstrad (who in turn bought the rights to Sinclair back in '86) have had enough of all the prevaricating around the proverbial bush. Unfortunately for them, this came crashing down just as RCL had began shipping - with actual real people...

Of the claimed 400 mailed, only a handful of individuals have been able to show a (barely) functional product. Understandably, backers and the general public have all chosen not to hold their collective breath...
