Here’s a high-resolution photo of C128 motherboard for no particular reason:

This one has a Scandinavian character set, that’s why the three paper labeled EPROM chips.

One point worthy of note, though; You often find being said that the Commodore 128 has the “new SID”, 8580. That’s not the case however.

Not always at least. As you can see from the photo above, it’s the 6581 that sits next to the “video can”. Commodore 128 was launched in 1985, but the new SID didn’t appear until somewhere during 1987. All the early 128s must have a 6581. Later models of C128 did use the new SID chip, however, like the C128 DCR.

Btw, if you would like to use the photo for something, feel free to do so. But please credit me as the author and this blog as the source.
