Corsair’s first laptop “Corsair Voyager” is going to be exclusively powered by AMD hardware and has a touch bar. We know Corsair, a company known for producing high-end gaming gear, has announced its first laptop with AMD Ryzen 6000 mobile CPU and Radeon 6000 RX mobile GPU together in a futuristic chassis with its own touch bar AKA (S-keys), which is a set of exclusive 10-Key Stream Deck shortcuts plus arrow controls
Corsair First Laptop Is All AMD with Gaming Grade Specs and Hardware
The new Corsair Voyager is the company’s first gaming laptop to hit the market in 2022 during AMD’s keynote at Computex 2022 Q2-3. It will feature the latest Ryzen 6000-series processors and Radeon RX 6000-series graphics, thanks to a partnership with AMD and the AMD Advantage program.
We noticed ten easily accessible customizable S-key shortcut buttons on top of the keyboard deck during AMD’s keynote at Computex. The Elgato Stream Deck software powers these S-keys, implying that they will be most useful during live Steam and Twitch sessions.
This laptop is ideal for gamers, content creators, and PC enthusiasts, who demand an all-AMD machine for high-performance tasks. It offers an 8-core Ryzen 6000 series Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 processor and a Radeon RX 6000-series graphics card.
Gamers can enjoy today’s most graphically intensive games at impressively high frame rates thanks to AMD FreeSync Premium support and RX 6800M mobile graphics and Ryzen 9 6800HS power combined. We also learned that this machine is supported with FreeSync Premium for silky-smooth gameplay.
It also has a 240 Hertz refresh rate with a 2560×1600 QHD+ IPS resolution on a 16-inch screen. We noticed 32GB of DDR5 memory and a 2TB SSD for storage, expandable to 4 TB. It also comes with the latest Voyager gaming peripheral for gamers, which is designed to improve the user experience.
The especially of this laptop is being specially designed for gamers in mind, and it includes many streaming-focused steam keys, a touch bar, and dedicated short caps for better controls. As expected this comes with a full RGB keyboard with a per-key lighting effect.
The Voyager is available in two models: one with AMD Ryzen 7 processors and one with AMD Ryzen 9.
The AMD Ryzen 9 6800HS-powered Voyager offers 8 cores and 16 threads, making it an ideal choice for multitasking or complex gaming scenarios. The AMD Radeon™ RX 6800M mobile graphics offers 12GB of GDDR5 VRAM, providing superior graphics performance for the most demanding games.
To our reports: Corsair’s new Voyager is perfect for gamers who want the best possible performance without sacrificing a single FPS.

What To Expect From Corsair’s Gaming Laptops
We enjoy Voyager is an all-AMD machine, with up to a Ryzen 9 6900HS 8-Core CPU and a Radeon 6800M GPU and bundled with a massive 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR5 Ram and up to 2TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD, but our affordability concerns are always there.
A three-grand laptop is hard to hands-on and if you have market analysis most selling laptops are mid-rangers. We suggest Corsair design an exciting gaming laptop for the mid-range segment and included all AMD hardware just like they did with the new Corsair Voyager A1600.
Though we are impressed, perhaps more intriguing is the feature at the top of the Corsair Voyager A1600’s deck. The Corsair touch bar (sS-Keys) is ideal for creating a customizable macro bar with an integrated tiny display.
We also like the fact that the 10 customizable S-key shortcut keys are powered by Elgato Stream Deck software, which indicates that this is a laptop aimed at streamers, but content creators should be focused as we found Asus Duo laptops to be multi-purposed.
