It is, of course, common sense that ATI HD 4XXX GPUs do not officially support DirectX 11. However, is there any way to run DX11 on ATI HD4870? I want to try the recently released Crysis 2 Hi-Res pack which requires DX11 but my machine cannot run it. I google around and the straight answer is no.

My OS is Windows 7 64 bit.

Sounds a stupid question, but I would appreciate a solution even if it is not a stable build.

I might be wrong, but wasn't the high res pack separate from the DirectX 11 pack? Pretty certain I downloaded two different files when it was released, one for the higher resolution textures and one for the DirectX 11 effects. If so, you should just be able to download the texture pack.
