Corsair, a well-known manufacturer of PC gaming components, has unveiled its first gaming laptop, the Corsair Voyager a1600. It’s an all AMD machine with a row of specialized buttons to map live stream functions. Here, we will go through the specs, features, availability and expected price of the Corsair Voyager a1600 in Nepal.
Corsair Voyager a1600 Overview:
To begin with, the Voyager a1600 is powered by a top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS CPU. It’s an octa-core CPU with 16 threads and a maximum clock speed of 4.2GHz. This is accompanied by a Radeon RX 6800M GPU, 32GB of RAM (Corsair Vengeance DDR5), and 2TB of NVMe SSD storage.
There is also a lower-specced Ryzen 7 6800HS variant with the same RX 6800M graphics card. It can be configured with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe SSD.
There’s also a specific mux-switch enabling a smooth transition between the integrated GPU and discrete GPU, which are both based on the same RDNA2 architecture in this case. The laptop has two fans with vapor chamber cooling system to keep the thermals under control.
