Commodore - From 64K to 64 Bit

The more "mature" gamers among you, were faced with an emotional struggle as Commodore gradually announced its intentions last month. Now, as if the Infogrames to Atari fiasco was not enough, gamers are faced with another retro attempt which really has no relevance to the poast, other than the name. This time however the Commodore name, it seems, will adorn some of the most powerful PC's available to gamers.

Commodore Gaming announced that CeBIT 2007 will see the launch of a new breed of gaming PC as the legendary Commodore brand returns to the world of computer and video games hardware with the highest specifications available for gamers.

Bala Keilman, CEO for Commodore Gaming, commented 25 years ago, Commodore launched the best selling personal computer of the late 20th Century, the C64, and defined the early computer games experience for millions of people worldwide. We are privileged and excited to bring the Commodore brand back to the gaming community and mark a new chapter in its history with this exceptional machine. We're sure that it will deliver what gamers need and want.

The new range of optimised Gaming PCs will be launched at the CeBIT show in Hannover, Germany, on 15th March, offering people the chance to play the high performance purpose-built machines with the latest PC games.

Commodore Gaming will be making further announcements at the launch, and the company promises there are some very exciting aspects of the product still to be revealed. Browse through our images gallery which will offer further clues to what you can expect from the Commodore brand in the future.

Commodore - From 64K to 64 Bit

Got 8 of the old 64s. PC forever!? I don't think so! Think of all the consoles on the market... 30 years ago space shuttles have been flying to somewhere with the power of 3 C64s and now? We got Windows and all the other stuff that doesn't work properly. Think about it... My 64 never hung up. Even not after playing the same game for about 10 to 14 hours! Who can say this about his PC? After a few hours it starts lagging. Don't say this isn't a fact! It is! Even with 2GB RAM, 3,millions of GHz and 1GB Graphic-RAM. What's the idea!? Still playing games on the original!
