Officials from Commodore Gaming have announced that the company is to launch its range of gaming PCs in the U.S. market during the third quarter of 2007. The four models of PC will initially only be available online, with a retail rollout to follow. The four PCs, named as the entry level Cg, Cgs, Cgx and Cxx have already been launched in Europe. The PCs include Intel Quad Core processors and DirectX 10 enabled graphics cards, although each system can be customized according to a customer’s specifications. The PCs will be demonstrated this week in the Presidential Suite of the Casa del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, although not as an official part of E3. The Commodore brand was made famous in the ‘80s and ‘90s with the 8-bit Commodore 64 home computer and the 16-bit Amiga family, with new company Commodore Gaming being formed to reintroduce the brand to the market. The new gaming PCs will launch in the U.S. on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Commodore 64’s release. “Commodore Gaming will ensure customers that only the very best components are provided to deliver the ultimate PC gaming experience. We also bring new ideas such as the Ice Cube cooling technology, whilst our C-kin painting process brings a fresh approach to chassis design and the concept of a fully personalized system. The Commodore name means we have a lot to live up to but it is part of our ambition to uphold this industry defining legacy", said CEO Bala Keilman. "The incredible heritage of Commodore in the US market means we are proud and excited to offer these great systems. The interest and demand from the US has been a real motivator to realize this step only four months after our European launch", he added.
