Corsair bets on a Touch Bar equivalent for its first laptop


Corsair, the props well known to gamers, has a laptop in its boxes. For this first launched in the sector, the manufacturer will bet on a novelty endangered in the Apple universe: the Touch Bar. The Verge was able to consult renderings of the Voyager a1600, and we can discover a colored touch bar allowing access to 10 customizable shortcuts.

First renderings of the machine released by The Verge.

Unlike Apple, the buttons do not replace the function keys, but are wedged above the keyboard. An interesting compromise to have more physical shortcuts without ignoring “real” keys, even if it means making the device a little bigger. This Touch Bar equivalent remains accessible when the screen is closed.

This novelty is powered by Elgato Stream Deck software. The keys can therefore be used by the streamers and other live content creator, for example to adjust their stream (audio modification, broadcast of additional content, etc.). For ordinary customers, we imagine that it will be possible to customize all of this to access their favorite shortcuts.

Apart from that, this computer is aimed at gamers and will offer high-end performance thanks to various configurations combining a Ryzen 6000 series processor and an AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics card. You can go up to 64 GB of RAM and 2 TB of storage. A low profile Cherry MX mechanical keyboard is integrated, obviously with RGB backlighting.
