Paired with the Intel Z370 chipset, it's ready for blazing fast application response, program and file access time. Quick, efficient, dominant.
Great Potential Storag Capacity
With the capability of having 2 PCIe M.2 Solid State drives, plus 2 SATA3 drives (SSD or HDD), there really are no limits on storage or backup potential. Microsoft Windows 10 can be installed on either a SATA3 SSD (535MB/s) or a Ultra Fast PCIe Gen 3 M.2 SSD (3000MB/s).
Mobile Multiple Monitor Support
With Mobile USB 3.0 powered monitors, you can have a multiple monitor trading platform that you can take with you on the road and set up anywhere. The laptop screen and mobile monitor screens are the same resolution, which means a chart that fits on the laptop also fits on the mobile monitor.

Processor Performance Comparison
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.
Single Threaded Performance
When using programs that only capable of using a single core of the processor (NinjaTrader 7, ThinkorSwim, Sierra Charts), a fast single-thread processor is better than a fast multi-thread processor.
Multi Threaded Performance
When using a program that can use all the cores of the processor (eSignal, TradeStation, NinjaTrader 8), a fast multi-thread processor is what you want.
Video Card Performance Comparison
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.
