Has Rockstar really downgraded GTA 5?

Digital Foundry:
Last week, YouTube footage emerged showing that Grand Theft Auto 5's 1.08 patch for PS4 and Xbox One had seemingly downgraded elements of the visual presentation. Parallax occlusion mapping was gone, anisotropic texture filtering had apparently been made even worse than it was already, while collision physics had been simplified. On top of that, long distance pop-in also seemed to take a turn for the worst. Had Rockstar really released an update for the game that made GTA 5 significantly worse, not better?

Our schedule was too packed to take a look at it at the time, but the video clearly had an effect on the developer, who posted this message: "We are aware of some graphical issues on the Xbox One and PS4 versions of GTA 5 after the most recent Title Update, and we are investigating a fix now."

We hope 1.10 version will be better.

So put POM back in the XB1 version.
If there is no noticeable difference to frame rates, but a drop in visual clarity, put it back in.

Before the recent patch, i was experiencing annoying bugs where my vehicle was invincible to damage, the hood, bumpers, doors fell off, and scratches appeared, but the vehicles would never dent, the recent update fixed that, but now there's a new issue, people are stating that whenever there's a lot going on, the game starts to lag really bad, and this just started after the recent update. Honestly, GTA online is a mess, they should've just stuck to the basics of mutiplayer, i had way more fun on gtaiv online, cops and crooks, hangmans noose, and free mode without coward mode (passive mode). What's even worse, is the fact that these updates are also affecting single player, SINGLE PLAYER, pathetic.
