Game. Create. Anywhere. Introducing the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 Gaming & Streaming Laptop AMD Advantage Edition

CORSAIR, a world leader in high-performance gear and systems for gamers, content creators, and PC enthusiasts, today unveiled its innovative first gaming and streaming laptop, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 AMD Advantage Edition. Combining a powerful AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processor, AMD Radeon RX 6800M mobile graphics with CORSAIR and Elgato's vast ecosystem of exclusive software and technologies, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 is a laptop like no other. Whether you're an aspiring content creator, avid gamer, or a full-time streamer, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 AMD Advantage Edition laptop can do everything you need and more.

Packing a wide array of state-of-the-art tech into an impressively thin 19.8 mm form-factor, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 boasts up to an 8-core, 16-thread AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS processor and AMD Radeon RX 6800M mobile graphics to game at maximum settings and cruise through resource-heavy applications like Adobe After Effects or OBS Studio. Moreover, this combination of cutting-edge AMD components unlocks the suite of exclusive AMD smart technologies, such as AMD Smart Access Memory, which helps unlock high performance by providing select AMD Ryzen processors with address to the entire high-speed GDDR6 graphics memory, further enhancing the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600's high-end performance. The CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 stays cool thanks to an advanced compact vapor chamber cooling system that evenly spreads heat, achieving lower temperatures with a thinner profile than traditional cooling methods.
The CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 is built with a gorgeous 16" 2560×1600 QHD+ IPS screen with superb color accuracy, displaying your gameplay in amazing detail. With an ultra-high 240 Hz refresh rate and support for AMD FreeSync Premium technology, and powered by RX 6800M mobile graphics, gamers can experience today's most graphically intense games at impressively high frame rates for silky-smooth gameplay.

Incorporating technology from the content creation experts at Elgato, the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 breaks new ground as a laptop built specifically with streamers in mind. Above the keyboard are ten easy-access customizable S-key shortcut buttons powered by Elgato Stream Deck software, putting one-touch streaming control at your fingertips. A 1080p30 FHD webcam immortalizes your biggest moments in sharp detail, while a directional 4-microphone array with ambient noise cancellation clearly captures your voice even in busy environments.

The CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 is complemented by a host of features tailored for today's gamers and content creators. CHERRY MX Ultra-Low Profile keyswitches deliver mechanical precision, illuminated by per-key RGB backlighting from ultra-bright, power-efficient CAPELLIX LEDs powered by CORSAIR iCUE software. A variety of ports, including two Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB 4.0 and one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, keep you connected to all your devices. An integrated receiver connects to up to three CORSAIR SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS peripherals for a strong, robust signal without tying up any USB ports.

"We knew we had to bring something new and different to the table," said Matthew Hsu, SVP & GM, System BU at CORSAIR. "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."

"We are extremely excited to partner with CORSAIR to launch the first Voyager laptop exclusively with AMD Advantage design framework," said Frank Azor, chief architect of Gaming Solutions at AMD. "The CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 is the first truly mobile streaming solution; coupled with AMD smart technologies like SmartShift MAX, users can automatically unleash the full potential of this laptop whether gaming, streaming, or creating."

For those who want to further customize the specs or the look of their CORSAIR VOYAGER laptop, ORIGIN PC will also offer custom UV printing or laser etching options. All ORIGIN PC systems include free lifetime 24/7 US based technical support and free lifetime labor.

A Windows 11 Pro version of both models will also be available.

Availability, Warranty, and Pricing
Availability and pricing for the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 Gaming Laptop will be announced at a later date. For up-to-date availability information, please refer to the CORSAIR website or contact your local CORSAIR sales or PR representative.

Well, it's "only" 2.4 kg, so technically you could take it anywhere.

I do not like that gap between the screen and the base of the laptop.

At least if someone tried to steal it from you, you could beat them with it.

I might have been too subtle. My implication was that the screen is WAY too small for gaming and content creation, portable or not. When manufacturers start making laptops with 19" and 20" screens that have similar specs to the one on offer in this article, then we can start taking their claims seriously. Until then it's just marketing BS.

Depending on how critical color accuracy is, I would take their claim of "superb color accuracy" with a bucket of salt. Sure, its IPS, but I don't think you're going to get the same color accuracy as you would with professional color monitors. Unless there's been some kind of new breakthrough in display panel technology that I haven't heard of, high refresh rates & professional-grade color accuracy doesn't exist yet. I think this is geared more towards gaming. I'm not sure about their laptops, but the software for their products tends to give people headaches, ball aches, and all kinds of problems.

Didnt pay attention earlier, is that SD 7.0 spec for reader correct? If so this might be the 1st laptop with SD express reader, given most laptops these days skimp on SD readers its refreshing to see full sized reader.

Not a bad-looking laptop TBH but lack of actual product shots and exclusive use of renders means one of only two things:

1) This isn't ready to ship for a while yet.
2) It's made of nasty plastic and doesn't look as good in real photos as it does in glossy renders.

Other than that, cooling and aesthetic design is great - my reserved judgement is because Corsair's own-brand hardware is overpriced and they'll no doubt be charging a further premium for the integrated Elgato deck that 99.x% of buyers DGAF about.

Agreed, but at least it's 16:10 - so much better to work from vs 16:9 IMO. Having worked from both, I think 16" 16:10 feels about the same as a 17" 16:9. Considering they don't mention color accuracy specs makes me think they are less than serious about the "content creation" selling point though.

Agreed, that aspect ratio is very useful for content creation.

ASUS had it before late last year with their ProArt StudioBook Pro 16, what a lengthy name.

Correction, needs to be a portable workstation not a laptop.
