Falcon Northwest’s New Tiki - The world's most powerful micro-tower

For Falcon's 20th anniversary, Falcon jammed an 18-core Xeon E5-2699 V3 CPU inside the Tiki's 4-inch wide case. And yes, that CPU has Hyper-Threading, so be prepared to feel your jaw slap your face after it has bounced off the floor when you pull up the Task Manager in Windows and see the Tiki's thread count: 36.

It doesn’t stop there though. Falcon taps none other than Nvidia’s beastly GeForce GTX Titan X for graphics. Besides being able to play many of today’s games at 4K resolution by itself—though you’ll still want a G-sync panel in my opinion—it's also a tour de force of specsmanship with 12GB of RAM and a GPU core with 3,072 shader units.

A Falcon Northwest Exclusive Design

The Tiki does packs all that firepower into a chassis 4-inches wide, 13.25-inches tall and 13-inches deep. Impossible! After all, you’re thinking, you can’t get an LGA2011-V3 CPU into such a small machine, much less an 18-core Xeon.

That may have been true last year, but this spring Asrock released its crazy X99E-ITX/AC motherboard, which did what others told me was impossible: Put a massive LGA2011-V3 socket into a tiny Mini ITX motherboard. You see, the X99 chipset and its big-boy CPUs feature quad-channel memory controllers, and that means you need four pieces of RAM.

Falcon Northwest uses Asrock’s new X99E-ITX/AC to get the 18-core Xeon inside its Tiki.

Unlike other small PCs you may have seen, Tiki isn't compact because there's not much in it. Falcon Northwest’s designed it from the ground up to be an enthusiast-class system, and every millimeter of space is packed with power.

Here's just a few of its features:
