A lot of gamers want to play games like PUBG, GTA, Witcher 3, Battlefield 1 or the Call of Duty series and GTX 1060 is an excellent option for them.
Q. 3 How is the Gaming Laptop Segment doing currently in comparison to Gaming PCs?
The Gaming Laptop segment is booming and thanks to the lower prices of the laptops using the 10 series graphics cards. A considerable number of Gamers are opting for laptops.

Another reason for the Gaming laptop growth in India is an increase in the number of Gamers looking for content creation as well as streaming both for YouTube and Twitch.
