Like the title says I am worried about my hardware, especially my two GTX 780s not being supported by DX 12. Does anyone know if they are going to have any backwards compatibility?

In addition, NVIDIA will match Microsoft OS support for DX12. Over 70% of gaming PCs are now DX11 based. NVIDIA will support the DX12 API on all the DX11-class GPUs it has shipped; these belong to the Fermi, Kepler and Maxwell architectural families. With more than 50% market share (65% for discrete graphics) among DX11-based gaming systems, NVIDIA alone will provide game developers the majority of the potential installed base. - See more at: http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2014/03/20/directx-12/#sth...
