Commodore 64 reborn as 1.8Ghz dual-core C64x

The much-loved Commodore 64 PC is to rise like a phoenix from the flames this summer, reborn as the souped-up C64x

Housed in the same old-skool casing as the original Commodore 64, the updated C64x will have specs fit for a modern day PC.

A 1.8Ghz dual-core Intel Atom D525 processor, Nvidia graphics chip, HDMI port, up to 1TB hard drive, 2 or 4GB RAM options and an optional Blu-ray player will all fit snugly inside the brown chunky keyboard.

And, for you older gaming geeks hankering for a bit of 8-bit retro playtime, it’ll even come with an integrated C64 emulator.

Pre-orders start at around £365 ($595) with the first units set to ship in May.
