CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, unveiled its first-ever gaming and streaming laptop, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 AMD Advantage Edition, during the Computex 2022 keynote.
Aimed at gamers, content creators, and streamers, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 comes in two versions: AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS (8-Core / 16-Thread, 4.4GHz+) and AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS CPU (8-Core / 16-Thread, 4.8GHz+) with a Radeon RX 6800M GPU for both. Both come with CORSAIR and Elgato’s vast ecosystem of exclusive software and technologies.
Further, the gaming laptop features a 16” 2560×1600 QHD+ IPS display (16:10) that offers an ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate and support for AMD FreeSync Premium technology. It measures 356mmx286.7mmx19.9mm and weighs 2.4kg.
The Ryzen 7 version comes with 32GB of DDR5 RAM and a 1TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD, while the Ryzen 9 model has 64GB GB of DDR RAM and a 2TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD.
In terms of I/O port, both include 2 x Thunderbolt 3-ready USB 4.0 ports, 1 x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, 1 x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port, an SDXC 7.0 card reader, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. On the connectivity front, it supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.
The laptop also features a touch bar above the keyboard with ten easy-access customizable S-key shortcut buttons powered by Elgato Stream Deck software and offers one-touch streaming controls.
Other features include a full-sized keyboard with Cherry MX Ultra-Low Profile mechanical switches (in conjunction with membrane for half-height keys), full RGB backlighting, and a 1080p30 FHD webcam.
Additionally, the CORSAIR VOYAGER has a directional 4-microphone array with ambient noise cancellation that clearly captures the user’s voice even in busy environments. It also features an advanced compact vapor chamber cooling system that enables it to stay cool and evenly spread heat by achieving lower temperatures with a thinner profile instead of traditional cooling methods.
Both laptops run on Windows 11 Home operating system. However, a Windows 11 Pro version of both models will also be available. The devices are powered by a 6,410mAh battery with support for 99W fast charging.
“We knew we had to bring something new and different to the table. With our unique position in the industry, we were able to pull from the best of what CORSAIR has to offer – from award-winning components to extensive software integration – to create a laptop that no one else can,” Matthew Hsu, SVP & GM, System BU at CORSAIR.
While the availability has not yet been announced, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 will start at $2699.99 for the Ryzen 7 chipset option and the Ryzen 9 processor model will cost $2999.99.
