Today NVIDIA revealed the launch details for the company’s reimagining of Valve’s iconic video game Portal, widely regarded as one of the best video games of all time, with advanced graphics features such as full ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS 3, and more, to give the game a striking new look and feel.
Performance is accelerated with NVIDIA DLSS 3, and system latency is minimised using NVIDIA Reflex.
Crafted by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios, Portal with RTX will be made available as a free, official downloadable content (DLC) for existing Portal owners on December 8, 2022, just in time for the holidays.
DLSS 3 Increases Portal with RTX Performance up to 2.8X!
Portal with RTX exemplifies the incredible power of our new, beyond fast GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, and the capabilities of our NVIDIA RTX Remix modding platform.
Every frame of gameplay is upgraded with stunning full ray tracing, new, hand-crafted hi-res physically-based textures, and new, enhanced high-poly models evocative of the originals.
To achieve the stunning new look, Portal with RTX utilises a suite of demanding graphics techniques that are accelerated by NVIDIA DLSS technology. DLSS 3 allows 40 Series GPU users to get over a 2.8X increase in performance, making the game incredibly smooth and responsive compared to native rendering, while 30 series GPU users will benefit from DLSS 2, bringing the game to a playable experience.
