Corsair just unveiled its Voyager a1600 AMD Advantage Edition streaming laptop. It runs on an AMD Ryzen 6000-series processor paired with AMD Radeon RX 6800M mobile graphics. It also features a unique row of "S-Keys" that can control streams.
The Corsair Voyager a1600 has a 16-inch 2560 x 1600 QHD IPS display with a 240Hz refresh rate. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium as well.
The Voyager a1600 has specs that compare well to those of the best gaming laptops, but Corsair also added some unique characteristics that make the device better for streaming.
Along the top of the keyboard, the laptop features a row of S-Keys, which are similar to the Elgato Stream Deck. They allow creators to create customizable shortcuts for streams. The laptop also has a 1080p FHD webcam and a directional four-microphone array with ambient noise cancellation.
“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."

Despite the relatively thin body of the laptop, Corsair claims that the PC will stay cool, thanks to a compact vapor chamber.
Corsair did not share a release date for the Voyager a1600, but we know models will be available for $2,700 and $3,000.
