Max Payne 3 PC: New screenshots and tested specs

A couple of new screenshots from the PC release of Max Payne 3 have been sent to us today directly from Rockstar Games.  The screenshots have been take in 2560x1578 resolution and really help to show off just how good the game is graphically on the PC compared to the two console versions released last week.

Rockstar have also let us know that the game should run smoothly on a variety of PC’s thanks to a highly scalable engine. Those that do have a high-end PC will get the most out of the game though thanks to various anti-aliasing options, scalable water quality, scalable shadow quality, increased detail for characters and vehicles and a scalable texture filter that further increases visual quality.

The game will also feature DirectX 11 including Hull/Tessellation/Domain Shaders, Gather4, Geometry shader / Stream Output and DX11 texture samplers.
