Hi Every one!

My new Falcon Northwest computer came yesterday.

I've got my weekend ahead setting everything up but I couldn't resist installing Steam and the
Witcher 3, just so I could see how it looks and runs.

First the specs...

It has a 5 gigahertz (GHz) 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8086K 40th Anniversary Edition processor. I opted not to Overclock it.

Liquid Cooling.

16 Gigabytes of 2666 MHz Ram, my old computer had 32 but I never felt that I was gaining anything by having that much.

750 Watt power supply.

Two 500 Gigabyte Intel SSD drives.
One drive is just for Steam, Gog and any other games I install.

The other SSD is partitioned, Windows goes on one partition and my graphics software (Photoshop etc.) goes on the other.

In addition there is a 4 Terabyte Western Digital Red Pro conventional hard drive for data storage and misc.

It has the new Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 video card based on the Turing Architecture.

I'm using the on-board sound and Ethernet.
I got a new set of Bose speakers.

It has Windows 10 Pro.

I also got a new LG 34" 21 by 9 wide screen 4k monitor.

I loaded up the Witcher 3 and I was blown away, the wide curved screen adds a lot of peripheral vision, and it's crystal clear.
Everything it set to Ultra and it runs as smooth as silk. The world really looks 3D, it's amazing.

Mike
