Noise is bigger in raw, it seems that jpg is smoother. RAW files without noise reduction applied.

Why would you compare a JPEG image with noise reduction applied against a RAW image without noise reduction applied? If you want to reduce the appearance of noise in a RAW image, apply noise reduction to it. Also apply sharpening because JPEGs are almost always sharpened in the camera.

agreed.   RAW images are meant to be post-processed, Just at they're post-processed in camera to produce the JPEGs.

If you've got the time, (and a decent editing app),  RAW will always produce a superior image 100% of the time.
