When building an F-1 at Falcon,
the objective is always to create a desktop computer functionally and aesthetically outstanding.
Isn’t it time you got an unfair advantage?
The F-1 is the first Windows computer capable of more than 1.1 TeraFLOPS* of extreme performance (*1012 FLOPS).
Memory is at the core of every computer and with a bewildering array of choices, we have settled on our custom sourced high reliability memory to make sure the system is rock solid for trading.
Includes Intel 2 Gigabit Lan, 7.1 DTS Audio, Steel PCIe Slots, Ultra M.2 to help that data sing, 12,000 Hrs capacitors to ensure the system keeps ticking with the market and a whole lot more.
Have you ever had a bad Windows update, Virus, Or a trading software update that just messed everything up? Well no more!!! Paragon will keep a ongoing daily backup so the you can restore your computer back to a point in time that it worked well sorta like a time machine.
Choose between the some of best video cards in the industry for Trading.
DisplayFusion will make your multi-monitor life much easier! With powerful features like Windows Management, Window Position Profiles and fully customizable HotKeys, DisplayFusion will make managing your multiple monitors easy.
You heard that right. We take care you start to finish with your F-Series computer system.
When deciding which Falcon Desktop to buy, knowing which performs better for your trading program(s) is key. If you do not know if your program is Single- or Multi-Thread capable, contact our sales staff and we will do our best to find out for you. Take a look at the chart below to see where each CPU we use stands compared to the others. Mouse-over or touch each bar for its value.
When using programs that only capable of using a single core of the processor (NinjaTrader 7, Sierra Charts), a fast single-thread processor is better than a fast multi-thread processor.
When using a program that can use all the cores of the processor (eSignal, TradeStation, ThinkorSwim, NinjaTrader 8), a fast multi-thread processor is what you want.
Falcon Desktops give you the ability to have multiple charts open on multiple screens. These charts use simple 2D elements such as simple vectors, fonts and text, and are driven by the Windows 10 interface. Having high-end graphics cards can make a trading computer more complex (and also more expensive) than it needs to be. Below are the summed up scores, when testing 2D functionality, of our video cards (the P620 and GT 710) compared to some of the more powerful (and expensive) cards out there, like the GTX 1080. While these cards are meant for gaming, they also have other purposes. If you would like to purchase a non-standard graphics card with your desktop, please call our Sales team.
The processor performance of our computers is the highest you can get anywhere. The higher performance is due to the powerful cooling systems and cutting edge motherboards where the max turbo speed is sustained by more cores and for longer periods of time than is normal for the computer industry.
Reliability is critical to a good trading computer. Our chassis have excellent cooling, which is critical to avoiding component failure. Our power supplies feature power factor correction and highly stable voltages. All computers produced at Falcon undergo 72-96 hours of stress testing. Our tests use 9 different stress tests so that we ensure your system is going to last well past the expected lifetime of most other computers.
Our Technical Support staff is comprised of experts with hands-on training and experience. Our top technicians have been with us for many years. When you call other computer manufacturers you often get automated systems, minimally trained people, and headaches. We have a different philosophy of service at Falcon.
If (in the rare case) a component fails, you can depend on us to identify the problem and get it fixed with onsite service to get you back up and running without having to ship your computer back.

The Learn How to Trade Guide helps the beginning trader to understand his/her choices and different paths in the world of trading. Selecting the path right for you is very important. Many beginning traders could have done much better if they had a better understanding of all their options. Is Stocks or Forex or Options or Futures your best choice? What methodologies should you consider? What time frame should you trade?
This guide summarizes what it takes to become an independent trader (no day job) or a serious trader who still wants to keep his day job. What should you expect for returns? What broker should you use? What software should you use? Risk Management is where most new traders fail by trading too much risk on each trade. We will guide you on proper risk management. What about automated trading? What equipment should you have? A must read for most beginning and intermediate traders.
At Falcon we sell computers to a lot of veteran traders. In this guide we try to focus on some of the core principals of what we have learned in trading and on what our veteran traders have told us they have learned.
