Corsair reveals Voyager a1600 gaming laptop packed with streaming features
Corsair has moved into making their first official laptop, the Voyager a1600. Combining high-end specs and the Elgato Stream Deck, it is streamer-focused.
From RAM to furniture, Corsair seemingly does it all these days. Now, they’ve announced their first branded laptop, the Voyager a1600. After acquiring Origin PC in 2019, it was only a matter of time before Corsair began to put them to use to combine their other acquisitions.
Corsair has created two different units, with very minimal differences between them. Ryzen 7 6800HS and Ryzen 9 6900HS versions are available, with the Ryzen 7 featuring 8GB of DDR5 RAM and the Ryzen 9 equipped with 16GB.
They’ve seemingly gone all AMD with these two units, with AMD’s Radeon RX6800M taking the GPU slot. It’s a pretty beefy beast of a laptop, which you’d expect it to be, as it will cost you to the tune of $2700 and $3000 for the two different versions.
Also on board is an ultra-low profile mechanical CHERRY MX keyboard, which is combined with a membrane for half-height keys.
For a screen, Corsair has gone with a 16-inch, 16:10 IPS panel with a 240Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 2560×1600.
Voyager a1600 has Elgato Stream Deck onboard
The Corsair Voyager a1600 features Elgato’s Stream Deck keys along the top. It allows users to bring in their already created shortcuts or leap into the ecosystem from the ground floor.
Combining Origin PC and Elgato seems like a no-brainer at this point, with the content creation focus also backed by the inclusion of ultra-fast USB 4.0 ports for external storage. There’s an SD card onboard as well.
Corsair’s Voyager a1600 is being marketed as the all-in-one solution for a lot of streamers, with a 1080p, 30FPS webcam included. Stream Deck has proven to be a massive success, so making it a major selling point of the laptop might push users to make the switch.
There’s also a microphone onboard, but even with its major selling points, we doubt that any discernable streamer will actually use it.
However, the high price in comparison to a similarly powered desktop might tear some away from making this a success.
