Portal with RTX Is Accelerated By NVIDIA DLSS 3

Portal with RTX’s full ray tracing is beautiful, and incredibly demanding. To experience Portal with RTX at Ultra settings, NVIDIA DLSS and a powerful GeForce RTX GPU are recommended.


In Portal with RTX, DLSS 3 enables GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics card owners to experience full ray tracing at 4K at over 60 FPS, a previously unimaginable feat.

Owners of previous-generation high-performance GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards can leverage the critically-acclaimed DLSS 2 to play at over 60 FPS at 1440p, with Ultra Settings.

And a wide array of configurations can play Portal with RTX at 1920x1080, Ultra Settings, with the power of DLSS. For increased performance, settings can be reduced from Ultra to High.

Before playing Portal with RTX, please ensure your system matches or exceeds the requirements for CPU and RAM, for the best possible experience:

For GPUs outside the minimum spec (i.e. GeForce RTX 20 Series), and between minimum and recommended (i.e. some GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs), the easiest path to better performance is to use GeForce Experience. Simply download the latest game ready driver (527.56 WHQL), find Portal with RTX, and click “Optimize” to automatically configure the best combination of image quality and performance settings for your GeForce RTX 20 or 30 Series GPU. 

Alternatively we have prepared some recommended graphic settings charts to help guide you to higher frames in your play experience. To adjust your graphics settings in-game, press Alt-X to open the Remix graphics window:

These settings target to improve frame rates and your experience will vary depending on your system configuration. These settings may also reduce visual quality. 

Please do not alter the Portal “video-advanced” settings, as attempting to adjust these settings may lead to instability; press Alt-X to use the Remix graphics settings window instead. If you have already altered Portal advanced video settings, we recommend you reset them to default.
