how does pixel shifting compare to raw?

Does pixel shifting reveal more detail then raw? After all the pixel shifting is done with jpgs which have less detail then raw images

Thanks

I think you might want to review how the tech works.

Pixel shift resolution RAW has much more detail than a regular RAW.

A pixel shift resolution jpeg will have much more detail than a regular jpeg.

However, a pixel shift resolution jpeg will probably have more apparent detail than a RAW, but will lack the properties of a RAW file that make it so great to edit, like less dynamic range, 8 bit instead of 14 bit, cooked white balance, tons of information thrown out and lossy compression.
