Corsair launched its first gaming laptop during the Computex 2022 keynote in amd. The machine, called Voyager, will launch exclusively with AMD hardware. It also has some unique touches that make it “the first laptop designed to be a truly mobile streaming solution,” according to AMD’s Frank Azor.
Those additions include a 10-key streaming command center on the laptop’s hinge and a Full HD webcam. Both are bolstered by two key pieces of Elgato software: the Stream Deck for the command center and the Camera Hub for the webcam, which lets you adjust the field of view, change video inputs, and fine-tune the look of your video.
The Corsair Voyager is part of the AMD Advantage program under the hood, so it’s exclusively equipped with a Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU. AMD did not mention specific details during its Computex presentation, but said the machine will ship with the latest generations for both parties. A early may leak he referenced a Corsair laptop with a Ryzen 9 6900HX and Radeon RX 6800M, which may be the Voyager’s flagship configuration.
Additionally, the machine comes equipped with Corsair DDR5 memory, as well as a 16-inch 240Hz 1440p display with FreeSync Premium support.
As part of the AMD Advantage program, Voyager has access to a suite of AMD Smart technologies, including SmartShift and Smart Access Memory. You’ll also have access to the recently announced Smart Access Storage. This technology enables Microsoft’s DirectStorage API on AMD Advantage laptops, helping to increase load times on supported games.
The Corsair Voyager will be available this summer, both in preconfigured models and customizable versions available through Origin PC. No word on pricing yet, but with a Touch Bar-style streaming command center and AMD’s flagship hardware, it’s likely to be pricey.
