You obviously can not read, I said compare GTA IV and Max Payne 3 on PC, as in, both games on PC, to get an idea of how far RAGE has come forward. Under the same hardware, Max Payne 3 can put out a LOT more details and variables compared to GTA IV and still perform better framerate wise.
A good example is to compare interior loads, look how much stress GTA IV puts on your CPU and GPU and just look at the graphical quality, now switch to Max Payne 3 and compare a similar interior world, the game performs better, but also looks better, the game is pumping out DirectX 11, the game is showing off HDAO Shadows, The game is applying tesselation to textures and ramping up the processed image quality and effects. Graphics wise, it completely destroys GTA IV and is still running on average 3x times better than GTA IV.
Between GTA IV and Max Payne 3, the PC never saw another RAGE game, so Max Payne 3 is the only real benchmark we have on how far RAGE has come and how well it copes with PC hardware now, unlike the GTA IV version which felt very bloated and very port-ish, with Max Payne 3, the engine really gets to shine and I can't see Rockstar ditching that when they do a PC version of GTA V.
And the reason I brought this up is because the PS3 version got the same treatment, pre-Max Payne 3 RAGE wasn't good on the PS3, it was a ported engine from the Xbox 360, where as Max Payne 3 is the first time the PS3 actually got a RAGE programmed for it, it makes use of the SPU's and post process effects, the engine can handle MLAA and can really keep things in check now with very little screen tearing and can still pump out full 720p on the system, something which pre-MP3 RAGE couldn't handle.
YOU must be the dense one if you seriously think the Rockstar Studios don't communicate with each other, do you seriously think Rockstar San Diego (Where the RAGE engine is done) is going to say "Hey, North, do you guys want to use this new updated engine for GTA V?" and them say "Fuck that, we're sticking with the old engine, Xbox 360 ftw! Fuck PC and PS3!"
