DIY PC Engine & TurboGrafx-16 RGB Video Out Modification Kit ‘TGezRGB’ Now Available

TurboGrafx-16-RGB-Mod-BoardAs amazing as the PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 are, the most standard models available sadly come lacking a direct RGB out signal. While both are capable of providing pixel perfect visuals, the PC Engine was limited to RF out whilst the US equivalent came with just the red/yellow/white composite ports. To remedy this, a cheap do-it-yourself solution has arrived on the market, allowing those confident with a soldering iron to gift their NEC consoles with an all new RGB out port.

This all new kit known as TGezRGB comes directly from the team behind the aftermarket Nintendo NES console, the Super 8 Bit. For $39 you’ll be able to buy a custom built circuit board that provides easy rest-on-top soldering points to attach to the TurboGrafx-16’s mainboard. The other half of the modification connects to an AV port identical to the one found on the Mega Drive II / Genesis II - allowing you to use the same RGB cable to connect up to the TV.

Available to order directly from Super 8 Bit, postage to US will cost $4, while no price has been specified for international orders. Full instructions on fitting the modification are yet to be released, however, those interested will be pleased to know it is compatible with the TurboGrafx-16, and also the TurboDuo, PC Engine, and SuperGrafx with an additional few wires.
