C64x: A Commodore 64 with Blu-Ray, Dual-Core Processors, and More

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 20th, 2010

This Commodore 64 hasn’t just been hollowed out and stuffed with modern guts as a sort of retro case mod.  It’s a faithful rebuild with modern guts and  features a custom boot menu with Commodore 64 emulation–old school computing here we come.

Not only can you boot into Windows, Linux, or other supported operating systems but you can boot yourself right back in time to the C64 OS to enjoy your favorite old school programs and games.  Visit the link below to read up on the specs and check out some more photos. Thanks v_cr!

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
