You are wrong. This is at max details.
No, max details would have detail textures option from the 1.2 patch enabled, the effects of which can be seen in these mouseover examples. Granted, I don't really care for the effect myself, but that is max details. Also, as long as you have a clean running computer and keep the settings in line with your hardware's capabilities, you won't get any notable pop-in.

That said, while the skies in Rage are very pretty in screenshots they are utterly lifeless static skyboxes, while that REDengine3 shot is is almost surely using a fully dynamic sky as that's what CD Project has always done.

Ok, that effect is max details. The effect is literally a sharpen photoshop filter and a grain filter. It in no way improves the texture resolution or quality. I personally think it looks like shit and is a slap in the face to consumers. The link you posted has great examples of terrible textures.

Another high point of Rage is the grass models. It's literally just one always facing sprite. It also looks like it was made in 5 seconds. Straight lines with a brush.

About texture pop in, I get it, regardless of the settings. That was on my previous computer that now has HDD problems, but regardless, it ran every other game fine...
