Corsair enters the laptop market with an AMD-powered gaming laptop

PC accessories maker Corsair is expanding into laptops with a high-end laptop called Voyager a1600 that comes with the latest features.

The 16-inch laptop is aimed at the gaming and video streaming crowd and features AMD’s Ryzen 6000 mobile processors and the company’s high-end Radeon RX 6800 GPU.

Corsair has also managed to squeeze a number of high-end goodies into the laptop, including ultra-low Cherry MX switches on the keyboard. The product also has a 2,560 x 1,600 display capable of a 240Hz refresh rate.

The other notable feature is an under-screen LCD-powered “S-key shortcut button” bar, which was designed with video streamers in mind. Buyers will also get a 1080p 30fps webcam, four noise-canceling microphones, as well as two built-in 20mm speakers.

The Voyager a1600 is certainly large, weighing 5.2 pounds. But it is only 0.78 inches thick. Other features include Wi-Fi 6E, an SD card reader, and a combination of ports including Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, and USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A.

The laptop is also designed to support Corsair’s other PC accessories. “A built-in receiver connects to up to three Corsair Slipsteam Wireless devices for a strong, robust signal without blocking any USB ports,” the company says.

The product won’t come cheap, however. The base model starts at $2,699 with an 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS processor, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and 1TB of NVME storage. A second model will cost $2,999 and comes with a more powerful AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS chip, 32GB of DDR5 RAM, and 2TB of NVME storage.

There’s no word on a launch date; AMD says it should arrive over the summer. Interested users can go to the Voyager a1600 website(Opens in a new window) to sign up for product email updates.
