So no worries. Share Thanatos Telos July 9, 2013 8:27:27 PM What do you mean? Like running a DX9/10 game on a DX11 card? Yes. If you mean like running a DX9 or DX10 game that was never given proper support/modes for DX11 with DX11 effects and whatnot in DX11 mode, no. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

All video cards are fully backwards compatible with older versions of the APIs that they support, but never forwards compatible. This means that any graphics card that supports DirectX 11.0 will support all previous versions of DirectX including 9.0c, 10.0, and 10.1. They will not however support DirectX 11.1. The same is true for OpenGL. The new Radeon HD 7790 supports up to OpenGL 4.3, but 77xx-79xx support only up to 4.2, while 73xx-76xx support only up to OpenGL 4.1 m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
