It was during the event organized by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang that the timeless Portal was talked about: the great classic from Valve will be given a second life thanks to NVIDIA technology.

Portal is more beautiful than ever with ray tracing

The game Portal from Valve is already more than fifteen years old, and the title is still etched in the memory of players. Needless to say, it came up with a less original concept that allowed you to create portals and jump through to solve puzzles, and with exemplary fluidity. Although still pleasing to the eye, The portal is taking advantage of the just-released NVIDIA event to introduce the second youngster.

Portal will actually be entitled to a re-release thanks to the arrival of a new version called Portal with RTX. As the name suggests, this offering will get a new visual experience using the latest NVIDIA technologies and in particular RTX or ray tracing technology.
