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.

Bit pricey for a toy

If I want a dedicated machine to placate my C64 yearning, I guess I would rather use RetroPie. Costs me around $30.
I know it is not the same, but then Ultimate-64 is also a compromise of sorts.
