Is Nvidia’s RTX Remix necessary, or are we polishing rough gaming diamonds back into coal?

Nvidia’s RTX Remix, a resource platform that allows the modding community access to tools for remastering old titles with ease, has entered open beta and now we’re finally seeing the results. Unfortunately, those results look pretty mixed right now.

There’s been a recent demo showing the 23-year-old game Max Payne with RTX Remix enhancements, a mod that you can access here. Though it looks visually stunning while running on the RTX 4080 – one of the best graphics cards – and using path tracing, performance-wise it’s pretty bad.
