    Portal with RTX Launches December 8

    Find the cake with ray traced reflections.

    NVIDIA and Valve announced Portal with RTX launches for free on December 8 for all Portal owners on Steam.

    The upcoming release supports the latest RTX ray tracing capabilities from NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series cards. Additionally, the game supports DLSS 2 and 3 technology for extra performance gains across different settings and resolutions. RTX 20 and 30 series cards may also take advantage of DLSS 2 and RTX ray tracing.

    The official Steam description for the game reads, “Portal with RTX is a free DLC for all Portal owners developed by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios. Experience the critically acclaimed and award-winning Portal™ reimagined with ray tracing. 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, all in stunning 4K. In Portal with RTX, full ray tracing transforms each level, enabling light to bounce and be affected by the scene’s geometry and materials. Every light is ray-traced and casts shadows, global illumination indirect lighting naturally illuminates and darkens rooms, volumetric ray-traced lighting scatters through fog and smoke, and shadows are pixel perfect. Portal with RTX is compatible with all ray-tracing capable GPUs.”
