A tiny system with the gaming performance of a Titan Z
Of all the systems featuring an Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card, the Tiki-Z Special Edition from Falcon Northwest might be the most impressive. That's because the Tiki-Z Special Edition is a micro-tower measuring just 4 inches wide and 13 inches tall --the same size as the standard Tiki and roughly equivalent to the original Xbox console -- yet has enough space to accommodate Nvidia's Titan Z, which is powered by a pair of Kepler GPUs.
"Tiki-Z gives our customers the dual GPU option they’ve wanted since Tiki was first released," said Kelt Reeves, president of Falcon Northwest. "They can now play truly demanding 3D games at 4K resolution in a slim PC that can easily fit on anyone’s desk. Tiki-Z takes our power-per-cubic-inch mission to an entirely new level."
In order to make room for Nvidia's largest graphics card and keep it cool, Falcon Northwest had to make several modifications, including laser-cut venting with a special exhaust, and the addition of a side window with lighting, which also serves as a custom air intake duct. It also needed help from its hardware partners -- SilverStone created a new version of its tiny 600W PSU.
Pricing for the Tiki-Z starts at $5,614 and, for a limited time, will come with an Asus PB287Q 28-inch 4K monitor at no extra charge. Other features include an Asus Z97I Plus motherboard, Intel Core i7 4790K processor, Asetek liquid cooling, 8GB of DDR3-1866 RAM, GeForce GTX Titan Z, Crucial M550 256GB SSD, DVD writer, Windows 8.1, and three-year warranty.
