Max Payne 3 PC: New Screens and Details Plus Exclusive Interview with PC World
Max Payne 3 for PC features a wide range of advanced graphics options, including scalable high-resolution textures and character models, as seen in this new batch of screens, each of which can be viewed in full 2560x1578 high-definition glory on-click or over at the official Max Payne 3 site.

Also check out today's brand new interview with PC World, where we discuss many fine points of Max Payne 3 for PC, including the excerpt below:

What are you doing to take advantage of the powerful hardware available in a PC?
As you can see from the specs list, we’ve worked hard to make sure the game will run smoothly on a wide range of PC builds. But it’s when you get towards the top end of that range that you can really push a game to its limits, and the game will look and run incredibly on the most advanced current machines around at the moment and well into the near future.
You’ll find that screen resolution is scalable, there’s triple and even sextuple monitor support which helps to run higher screen resolutions, there’s 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. We’re also supporting DX11 with Max Payne 3, with features including Hull/Tessellation/Domain Shaders (which adds curvature to the character/vehicle models), Gather4 (for optimized shadow sampling / FXAA), Geometry shader / Stream Output and DX11 texture samplers to name a few.

As you can tell, there’s a lot for PC fans with higher-spec hardware to sink their teeth in to.
