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


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) 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.

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?

Falcon Northwest Tiki Review: Gaming Monster in a Petite Package


Falcon Northwest is mostly known for massive gaming systems, like the Mach V. The company has dabbled with smaller systems, such as the micro ATX-based Fragbox, but that machine tends to take up more floor space than most full-tower PCs thanks to its...
