Ultimate64.

Pues la cosa pinta muy molona, no creéis?

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!

Project

Why?!
Just because the Commodore 64 is AWESOME!

What does the introduction of the Ultimate 64 mean for the established Ultimate-II+ product?
Not much. The Ultimate-II+ will be continued, alongside of the Ultimate 64.

How compatible is the Ultimate 64 actually?
At this point it is "pretty good". Just like with the Ultimate-II+, software updates are used to fix issues.

"Pretty good", sounds like it's not 100%? Why sell a product that is not 100%?
100% is an awful number. To reach this, more feedback from the community is needed, especially from other C64 experts that can help pinpoint the issues. Without exposure in the field, it is virtually impossible to make it perfect, as different people look at different things.

How far are you really? Have you ever made it to run any demos?
I started the project some years ago, but never designed production-ready hardware for it. Some months ago, I picked up the pieces and merged it with the latest Ultimate-II+ code. This combination was prototyped on a product from Technolution B.V. (the company I work for); a product that uses an Altera (=Intel) FPGA and has DVI output as well as USB ports. Using a USB keyboard, I managed to type on this "thing" and load some demos from the 'Ultimate' drive. Many demos and games seemed to work flawlessly. From there, I decided I should first create the hardware platform with all the required I/O, such that I could do better tests. The result of this is shown in the 3D model above.

So, it will still take some time before the Ultimate 64 is ready to be sent to customers?
Yes. As per today, July 12, the purchase order for some prototypes was sent to the manufacturer. After the summer holiday I will do some initial testing and probably start up a larger production run after the initial mistakes have been fixed. I expect the board to be ready for sale in Q4 this year.

Y mucho más.... mirar la fuente para todo la info:

Lo que se ha comentado en las listas de correo del TurboChameleon es que la implementación será lo "complicado"...

Comparando, y barriendo para casa (y con razón) ya avisan que la compatibilidad será crucial, y en lo que pueda "fallar" este Ultimate64. Pero bueno, eso de que te encaje en una panera y de que puedas pincharle hard mola mucho.

Veremos qué tal va la economía para cuando salga, y qué compatibilidad tiene... :)
