HP has unveiled its new Pavilion Gaming lineup to cater the needs of gamers in the budget segment with the release of a notebook, two desktops, and a monitor. HP’s newest lineup is designed for users who are interested in gaming but don’t want to invest in a machine solely for gaming purposes, all of which start at a price well under $1,000.
With an angular design and a futuristic backlit keyboard, the HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop comes in a 15.6-inch form factor with Intel’s latest 8th Core i5/i7 processors. Users can configure their Pavilion Gaming laptop with 8GB of RAM, 1TB of onboard HDD and an option to install an SSD storage. In terms of graphics, users can choose to buy the Gaming laptop with either an AMD Radeon RX 560X, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or the much powerful NVIDIA GTX 1060 Max-Q.
The 15.6-inch display on board the Pavilion Gaming Laptop can go up to 4K resolution on a 60Hz refresh rate while users can also choose to buy the 1080p display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The keyboard comes with different options for backlighting with white, green and purple versions to choose from. HP is offering the Pavilion Gaming Laptop for a price of $800 (Rs 52,100).
HP has introduced two new Gaming desktops with the launch of the Pavilion 690 and Pavilion 790, the former being the cheapest of the lineup. The Gaming 690 tower is powered by an AMD Ryzen 2 2200G CPU with 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD and this configuration comes at an asking price of $549 (approx. Rs 35,800). Users will also be able to configure their Desktop 690 with an 8th generation Intel Core i7, 12GB of RAM and NVIDIA GTX 1060 for graphics, which is the maximum it can go due to its smaller form factor.
The Gaming 790 tower is a much bigger CPU which starts as low as $749 (approx. Rs 48,850) and goes up to $1,699 (approx. Rs 1,10,000). The cheapest variant of the desktop will come with core i5 and an NVIDIA 1050 graphics while the most expensive version will equip 32GB of RAM and a much powerful processor.
HP has also released a new 32.inch Gaming Monitor with HDR and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The display panel covers 95 percent of colour gamut on DCI-P3 with a refresh rate of 75Hz and has a built-in AMD Free-Sync support. HP has priced its Gaming 32 HDR display at $449 (approx. Rs 29,200) and will release it alongside other machines in the Pavilion Gaming line during May/June.
