Falcon Northwest Tiki Laptop Review

Falcon Northwest Tiki

In the few short years since its first release, the Falcon Northwest Tiki has garnered rave reviews from its owners and the press. It was PC Mag’s highest rated desktop PC of 2015 & one of C|Net’s Best Desktops of 2016. It has become a favorite of Virtual Reality creators due to its power and portability. Our new 22-core Xeon and Quadro graphics options have taken it from being a gamer’s dream to an unbelievably powerful workstation you can hide behind the monitor. To this day, Tiki has no parallel in power-per-cubic-inch.A solid footprint.

Tiki is so slim it might be knocked over by a stray elbow, pets, or young children. To eliminate that risk we ship each Tiki with a weighted base milled from a 5-pound billet of solid aluminum. The black-anodized aluminum provides an exact match to the standard black Tiki. Optionally, the aluminum can be painted to match or contrast a Tiki painted with our Exotic paintwork. The base is removable for those that would prefer to save the weight for transportation.

Integrated optical drive

Tiki features an integrated slot-loading Blu-Ray or DVD-RW drive that takes up minimal space. Getting an uber-graphics card and want to show it off to the world? Our side window option will show off the power lurking inside your Tiki in an elegant way. The acrylic window has a “green-glass” edge to the vent cuts that give it a subtle pop of color. With full-color RGB lighting controllable in software on Z270 platforms, or white LEDs dimmable via the system BIOS on X99 platforms. The window is even removable for easy cleaning.


Ports where you need them

Dual up front USB 3.0 ports provide easy access for frequently removed peripherals. And the top-mounted auto-sensing headphone and microphone jacks make switching from speakers to your headset a breeze.


Liquid cooled CPU

Tiki does the impossible by squeezing a full 120mm liquid cooling radiator into its 4-inch width. The cooling system is fully sealed and requires no refilling for the life of the unit. 10-Core Intel Extreme Editions and even 22-core Xeon processors will stay cool and run quietly. When you compress this much power into this little space, heat and noise issues become an engineering challenge.
