The release of Portal with RTX is almost here and we can now see how it compares to the original Portal out there
I know we have all been pining for more Portal to come back into our lives and now we are just about to have that. It is more of the same game that we have loved from Valve up to now, but it is something more to have. Here we go with Portal with RTX to be added to our PC library out there, as long as our systems can actually run it all. It is the same great game but with all of the extra bells and whistles that were not around when it first launched. In the terms of the visuals for the game, that is. This is just the same game as before but rebuilt with all of the ray-tracing options and higher-end visuals we all demand in our current titles out there. Even if most of you cannot actually see them in motion…
Now, I make that joke about Portal with RTX as they are obviously showing off how the light will bounce around and interact in a more realistic way in the game. The stills for it all look truly amazing out there. What is odd, though, is that they show off the FPS for each version of the game in this video where it will never be able to be seen. That is all due to the video compression and other elements that cannot be captured in this way, but that does not change the fact that in that aspect Portal still looks the same. In fact, I am sure that there are many out there that will claim they can see the difference when there is no actual way to do so here. Even when you get the game on your rig, most of you will not be able to see it running that way but still claim you can. It may be a nice thing to see displayed in the corner, but I have a feeling some of you are just lying to yourself.
Portal — 4K NVIDIA DLSS 3 Comparison Video
Portal with RTX is launching December 8th, bringing full ray tracing and DLSS 3 to one of the best video games of all time. Here’s a quick look at DLSS 3 performance gains.
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.
Have you been waiting for this version of Portal to get out there and will you be grabbing it for free when December 8th hits? Will we ever get to see some of these features leap to the other platforms that the game is on or will it always stay on a PC moving forward? Will you claim you can see the higher frame rate here even if the video is still capped at 60 due to server limitations? Tell us all down in the comments what you are thinking and then feel free to discuss it all as you so wish to. We will keep sharing anything we can for Portal, so please keep an eye out on the site for all of that and anything else we can find to offer up.
