Falcon Northwest's current Talon packs support for all the components and storage even the most power-hungry users could want into its 19" tall by 9" wide frame. There will be mounting space for dual graphics cards (not for gaming, but think rendering and HPC tasks), 2-3 M.2 NVMe support, 2 x 2.5-inch SATA SSDs and 2 x 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch bays. Falcon Northwest will support up to a 1200W PSU inside of the Talon PC.

But the new Talon PC has support for the bigger E-ATX motherboards, so that it can house the massive Ryzen Threadripper PRO motherboards, with support for "even larger graphics cards". Falcon Northwest is also baking in an optional 80mm rear cooling fan, which will pull in fresh air to blow over the "latest GPU designs".

  • Mounting space for dual graphics cards (note: NVIDIA has ended SLI support)
  • Two or three M.2 NVMe drive support (varies by motherboard model)
  • Two 2.5" SATA drive bays
  • Two 3.5" hard drive or 2.5" SATA drive bays
  • Support for up to 1,200 Watt power supplies

New for 2022:

  • Support for larger E-ATX motherboards, including the massive Threadripper PRO boards
  • Support for even larger graphics card models
  • An optional new 80mm rear cooling fan to provide fresh air intake for the latest GPU designs
  • An improved liquid cooling mount with optional 4-fan push/pull cooling setups for the lowest possible noise

The company also has an "improved liquid cooling mount" with an optional 4-fan push/pull cooling setup, which Falcon Northwest says is "for the lowest possible noise". You'll have quieter operation of your Falcon Northwest Talon PC, with an insane amount of hardware grunt inside.
