But for those of you who lived and loved the dominating decade of Commodore, this should put a smile on your faces. The Inquirer recently found out that although Commodore is but a small dutch company these days, they're sticking the brand onto high-end PC gaming systems with NV 7950GX2s and AMD FX-60s :D

 


IF YOU remember Commodore 64 that means you are not a teenager any more. We certainly spent a piece of our life playing with that machine in the dawn of PC gaming.

 

Now, the Commodore brand sits on a range of high-end PCs equipped with Nvidia's 7950 GX2 card and an AMD FX 60. Commodore is now a Dutch company and is testing the waters to see is there a market for such a PC with this legendary brand on it.
