Falcon Northwest Tiki review

 

This gaming PC packs speed, power and … granite?

Premium performance ; Quiet while gaming ; Classy design

Fixed vertical position ; 16GB max memory

The Tiki is tiny, whispers while running the latest games and looks gorgeous in almost any setting. What more can you ask of a premium gaming machine?

Falcon Northwest Tiki Review

 

No‑compromises performance in a micro-tower

Doesn’t lay flat; very pricey

Size doesn’t matter. At least that’s what Falcon Northwest is saying with its latest entry into the micro-tower war, the Tiki, which offers full-size tower performance in a teeny, tiny case.

Falcon Northwest Tiki 2016

 

Easy enough, if you're willing to spend $1,200 or more, but most of the desktops we've tested that fit the bill are gaming rigs in the most classic sense of the word. That means they're big, they're heavy and their designs lack a certain cosmopolitan...

Insanely powerful, thanks to the very high-end parts in this configuration, yet still compact enough to not hog your desk. Expert construction, a sturdy chassis, and a clean understated look.

Very expensive, even configured with lower-end parts. The internal components aren't as easily accessible as in a standard tower. New high-end graphics card hardware may (or may not) be right around the corner.

The Falcon Northwest Tiki is the most powerful, and most expensive, VR-ready PC we've tested to date.

Falcon Northwest Tiki review

 

There is no shortage of desktop PCs (and even a handful of laptops) that meet the minimum specs required for the first generation of consumer virtual reality headsets. Both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive ask for recent Intel Core i5 or i7 processors,...

Falcon Northwest Tiki (2015)

 

If you need the sheer power of a fully loaded gaming PC in package no bigger than a console, the Falcon Northwest Tiki should be your first choice.

Slim. Killer paint job. Supports 4K gaming and video. Strong performance on multimedia and 3D benchmark tests. Three-year warranty.

Pricey as heck. Limited room for upgrades.

Conclusion The Falcon Northwest Tiki can compete, delivering smooth gameplay at 1080p and higher resolutions, with all the eye candy turned on. Its well-built compact design takes up about as much space as a gaming console, but it's so much more...

Falcon Northwest Tiki (2015) review

 

From the overclocked CPU to the 980 Ti, the Falcon Northwest Tiki proves that everything's faster in the northwest.

Review: Falcon Northwest's console-sized, 18-core micro PC is gloriously overkill

 

Size doesn't matter: Falcon packs a 36-thread CPU, GeForce Titan X and the fastest NVME SSD into a PC not much bigger than a game console.

Small and light ; 18-core Xeon, GeForce Titan X and Intel 750-series SSD

Expensive ; Take big memory bandwidth hit

For the average power user, the Tiki is overkill.

Falcon Northwest Tiki Review

 

The Falcon Northwest Tiki is a custom-built pre-constructed gaming PC that emphasizes both a radically small form factor and high performance processing power. We had the opportunity to take a peek at this system thanks to NVIDIA - inside this tiny...

The Falcon Northwest Tiki is not a machine made for penny-pinchers. If you’re planning on working with any gaming PC packing an NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN GPU, you’re going to be paying quite a chunk of change – this isn’t the sort of situation where...

High-End Meets Small Form Factor: GeForce Titan in Falcon Northwest's Tiki

 

Today NVIDIA officially unveiled its first consumer facing GK110 graphics card: the GeForce Titan. Although GK110 launched last year, gamers didn't have access to it as it launched exclusively as a Tesla part. No less than 18,688 GK110 based Tesla K20X...

Falcon Northwest Tiki

 

The compact Falcon Northwest Tiki gaming desktop has gaming performance that works even at very high quality settings.

Compact form factor. High-end processor and graphics. Dual SSD option. HDMI, DisplayPort, eSATA, and plenty of USB 3.0 ports. No bloatware. Great build quality.

Slower than overclocked systems on multimedia tests. Limited expansion. No kitsch enclosed. Must be operated vertically.
