Portal RTX confirms release date and minimum PC requirements

Portal is one of the most iconic games in the puzzle genre, a work of Valve that has gone down in history and that will come back to life thanks to Portal with RTX, a new version created by NVIDIA that renews the technical aspect of this classic game.

And just like that my 2070 super became obsolete. I blame Nvidia not supporting dlss for 20 series. They could probably do it but it doesn't make you go out and buy their new stuff

Why Portal RTX is the most demanding game I've ever tested | Digital Trends

Portal RTX may look like a quant remaster, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It's one of the most demanding games available today.

And in a bad way! This is not where gaming should be going. We should focus more on better physics, AI, more meaningful writing, substance in storytelling and overall art over reflections and lighting effects. But hey, you've got billion dollar companies trying to sell you stuff, so I guess you have to make a whole ecosystem around ray tracing because people make a living out of it on youtube. Talk about losing touch with reality and taking eye off the ball. Advancing gaming as a whole my ass!

This is Portal. Are you expecting them to remake it for different physics or something? What else should they have done other than make it pretty? Besides, this isn't just run of the mill ray-tracing. It's path traced. Richard on DF said path tracing with 4 bounces is very demanding.

Yeah this isn't basic RT like doing some shadows and reflections and that's it, it's doing a lot more, that's why the original Doom games and Quake 2 etc look so good with it turned on. Most other games that have RT don't have much of an effect at all because it's doing much more basic and limited fx, it's too demanding.

I get it, I'm a PC enthusiast, but I just feel that what we, and I do, way too much is checking out puddles and mirrors for reflections, rooms for lighting effects and rocks and trees for shadows.

I understand Path Tracing is expensive, and I get the DF side of things and all that. I listen to them and learn everyday, and I really like their cast and what they are doing.

I just genuinely think that the narrative and discussion is revolving too much on the technical aspects of the games nowadays, and I fully understand it when games are shipped in a poor condition today more and more.

I just mean that maybe we could have just done without this Portal RT update, and maybe we are at a point where we talk about RT as much as we talk about music or story when a new game comes out. I'm just saying that I think the discussion is unbalanced and skewed towards these relatively insignificant aspects of games.

Anyway, enjoy the Portal 2 RT.

And we shouldnt expect other advancements because Portal RTX is literally just a Tech Demo for Nvidia RTX Remix. Its just made to show what is possible using the RTX Remix tool and it looks like people can't wait for the release of it
