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.

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...

Falcon Northwest Tiki


Apple isn't the only company in the premium computer business these days. HP has had the Envy line for years, ASUS continues to push increasingly expensive and luxurious products (most recently under the “Prime” name) and Dell sporadically dots its...

Small and attractive ; Good interior layout ; Excellent gaming performance ; Quiet operation ; Standard 3-year warranty

Size restricts hardware upgrades

The Tiki is, in fact, one of the best boutique computers on the market today.

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) review: Falcon Northwest Tiki (Core i7 3770K)


Who remembers that Fred Armisen and Scarlett Johansson Marble Columns "Saturday Night Live" skit?

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.

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.)
