What cards does directx 11.2 support?

I already noticed a huge difference in performance in the BF4 beta when switching to Win 8 which I believe is because of the dx 11.1 support.

Now with win 8.1 to have its official release soon that is said to have Direct x 11.2 capabilities, I'm wondering if it will work with my card to or is it only new hardware only now.

My specs are in my sig. Thanks

DirectX is backwards compatible so your video card will work fine with games that utilize DirectX 11.2. However, it won't take advantage of any of the DirectX 11.2 features.

Why don't people stop worrying about getting ready for BF4 until you know exactly when it will come out. 99.9% chances are something will be better for the same price a month before it's released than what you get now.

Uhh BF4 comes out in 2 weeks. And I'm not preparing for BF4, I am able to run the game on ultra now that I switched to Win 8. Just had a question about 11.2 for future reference.
