Commodore 65 motherboardCommodore 65: Let's do it work with incompatible chipset

This article written by Giorgio Guagnini, that many thanks publicly to the technical ability and the undoubted tenacity in getting results at first sight impossible, tells the story of a veritable resurrection of a Commodore 65 motherboard, processor and video chipsets in the correct versions. An impossible task that only the ability of Giorgio was able to bring to fruition. The issue hoping it will be useful to those (I think very few in the world) are attempting the same feat.

Thanks again Giorgio!
