It's a fake comparison because it's an apple (JPG "straight out of the camera") vs. an orange (processed RAW)

A true comparison would, in my mind, be a photo-editor processed JPG vs the same photo-editor processed RAW.

A digital camera and a computer are not two separate things. A digital file is a digital file. There's no need to pretend that either JPG or unprocessed RAW are a photographic negative.

A better question to ask is where the processing occurs - in the camera or on your computer - and how much control you have over each of those processes.
