A senior HP India official said Thursday that while there has been a slowdown in the PC business in general, the gaming segment has continued to register strong growth.

“After the pandemic, we’ve seen the overall numbers (PC sales) slow down a little bit, but gaming is still strong and we’re growing faster than the market,” Bede said.

At the event, Bedi announced the launch of Omen and Victus gaming consoles for all types of gamers in India. The new range includes OMEN Transcend 16, OMEN 16 and Victus 16 laptops with a starting price of Rs 59,999 each.
