As of today, Corsair is selling the Voyager a1600 on its website and through major retailers, including Best Buy. Corsair's Origin business also offers customized backplates for customers.

With its cutting-edge features and high-end specifications, the Voyager 1600 is ideal for gamers, content creators, and streamers. It has a 16-inch IPS screen with a 240Hz refresh rate and a 2,560-by-1,600 resolution. 

The aluminum-built laptop also features an LCD under the main screen, which contains 10 programmable shortcut keys, although the display can be disabled by the owner.

The laptop's keyboard features RGB-lit keys and Cherry MX ultra-low profile switches that provide you with a satisfying typing experience that will keep you entertained. 

As part of the package, owners will also get an integrated 1080p30 webcam, four noise-canceling microphones, an SD card reader, as well as Wi-Fi 6E. It will last for some six to eight hours in 'quiet mode,' and the battery is replaceable.

The battery life will drop to two or three hours in the extreme mode for high frame rates. Additionally, there are two USB 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 3 compatibility, one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, and one USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port on the laptop.

The $2,699 version features AMD's Ryzen 7 6800HS, an 8-core CPU with 16 threads, clocking at 4.4GHz. AMD Radeon RX 6800M mobile GPU is used for graphics on the laptop.

A $2,999 model with AMD's Ryzen 9 6900HS processor is available for customers who want a bit more CPU power. Despite having 8 cores and 16 threads, the chip can reach over 4.8GHz at its maximum clock speed. 

As part of the $2,999 version, double the DDR5 RAM is featured at 32GB, as well as double the PCIe 4.0 NVME SSD storage at 2TB, but the GPU remains unchanged.

Depending on their price point, these laptops are compatible with either Windows 11 Home or Windows 11 Pro. As of now, Corsair only offers AMD-based Voyager a1600 models, but it could add Intel and Nvidia components in the future.
