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 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,...

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


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 surprises with full-on gaming prowess. Thanks to an enthusiast-oriented Intel Core i7 processor and gaming-class Nvidia graphics, the Tiki makes short work of our benchmark tests.

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

Falcon Northwest Tiki Core i7 3770K


The granite base on the bottom of the Falcon Northwest Tiki might not be to everyone's aesthetic taste, but there's no denying the technical and design achievement behind this slim tower gaming desktop. Should you spend $2,783 for it? With competing...

The Falcon Northwest Tiki innovates the slim-tower gaming PC, jamming more hardware inside than you might have thought possible.

The granite base isn't for everyone, and the limitations of the slim-tower design seem harsh given the Tiki's high price tag.

We don't recommend the Falcon Northwest Tiki for general-purpose high-end gaming, but this system is your best bet if you want a luxury-priced blend of speed and space savings.

Review: Falcon Northwest Tiki small form factor gaming PC


We review the Falcon Northwest Tiki, its recently launched small form factor PC that still packs a wallop in terms of both performance and reliability, if you can afford it.

Falcon Northwest Tiki


When you make your living as a technology writer, granite isn't a material you run across too often, unless it's on a friend's kitchen countertop. Usually it's all about plastic, metal, and silicon. But while Falcon Northwest's compact Tiki gaming...

Surprisingly powerful for its size ; Relatively roomy SSD and spacious hard drive ; Remarkably quiet despite cooling fans

Few expansion options ; Weak Wi-Fi signal without included external antennas

From its top-mounted Blu-ray drive to its granite base, the Tiki is an impressive gaming PC with an elegantly compact chassis. (The excellent design comes at a bit of a price premium, though.)

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?
