NVIDIA has announced that Portal with RTX, a mod that brings full ray tracing and DLSS 3 to Valve’s 2007 puzzle-platform game, will be available as a free download starting Thursday, December 8:
Free for all Portal owners, Portal with RTX reimagines Valve’s 2007 classic using today’s cutting edge technology. Full ray tracing illuminates, shades and shadows each test chamber with unparalleled quality. Remade hi-res textures and models react realistically to ray tracing. DLSS 2 enables GeForce RTX 30 series owners to play Portal with RTX in full ray tracing. And NVIDIA DLSS 3 delivers a 2.8x increase to frame rates, giving GeForce RTX 40 series gamers the performance to play Portal with RTX at 4K.
NVIDIA is recommending the GeForce RTX 4080 for players who want to experience Portal with RTX at 4K, with Ultra settings, at over 60 FPS, while owners of the GeForce RTX 3060 will be able to achieve playable frames at 1080p at High settings.
For a 60 FPS+ 1080p, High settings experience, NVIDIA recommends the GeForce RTX 3080, accelerated by DLSS 2.
NVIDIA will also be hosting a Portal with RTX launch party next week on Twitch and Steam, December 6, 10 a.m. PST, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Portal with RTX, new gameplay reveals, giveaways of Portal game codes, and a chance to win a GeForce RTX 4090.
