In this Computex 2022 keynote speech, AMD announced the Advantage notebook design proposed last year in cooperation with Corsair and will launch Corsair’s first gaming laptop “Voyager” in the second half of this year.

Just as Razer entered the development of notebook products from game peripheral accessories in the past, in order to connect to a larger game market, Corsair cooperated with AMD this time. The gaming laptop “Voyager” created through its Advantage laptop design solution will integrate the software functions of Corsair’s Elgato STREAM DECK video live operation console. In addition, it also has a video camera design of Elgato Full HD quality live broadcast level and supports 4 groups of microphone arrays to enhance the sound reception effect.

However, in addition to adopting the AMD Advantage notebook design solution, this notebook will also join the Smart Access Storage technology announced this time. It will speed up game data access and improve the efficiency of video and audio streaming. The network connection part supports Wi-Fi 6E specifications.
The official name of this notebook is Voyager a1600. Designed with a thickness of 19.8mm, the whole machine weighs 2.4 kg. The entry-level specification uses a Ryzen 7 6800HS processor, can be equipped with a Ryzen 9 6900HS processor at most, and is equipped with a Radeon RX 6800M graphics card. It is advertised that it can correspond to video creation and streaming computing performance such as Adobe After Effects or OBS Studio.

Other specifications include a 16-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution IPS screen that supports AMD FreeSync Premium anti-screen tearing technology. In addition, the LCD touch screen above the keyboard can correspond to 10 sets of quick key operations, and quickly check the information such as the power of the laptop. It can also be customized with the Elgato Stream Deck software.

In terms of ports, it supports two sets of USB 4.0 compatible with Thunderbolt 3 specifications, one set of USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, and one set of USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A. The keyboard uses the CHERRY MX ultra-short-stroke keyboard and supports single-key or partitioned CAPELLIX LED backlight settings. In addition, it also supports fingerprint recognition to unlock, SDXC 7.0 card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone connection hole.
