HP acquired PC maker VoodooPC in 2006, however the company did not continue with its brand name since and the brand name was withdrawn from the market. Now, HP may bring back 'VoodooPC' or 'Voodoo DNA' brands for high-performance notebooks.

It's surprising to see HP is planning to tap into the high-end gaming notebook market. As of now, it seems that HP has made plans to introduce one gaming notebook model as of now. Whether this move will be beneficial for HP or not is something that time will tell. In any case, it's always good to see more choice for high-end gaming notebooks, provided they are priced in a way to compete with other brands, especially with ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI.
