DirectX 10 dates back when ATI was not acquired by AMD

But if you're using a really old rig, here's the relative specification on which graphics cards not supporting DirectX 11.

If you're running Nvidia video cards, you're fine to go if your cards are newer (or exactly) than the Geforce GTS 450. Nvidia started supporting DirectX 11 with Geforce GTS 450, which officially came to the public in 2010. So if your card is less than 9 years old, then you can just stop reading here, and start grinding some Fortnite now!

And if you're AMD graphics cards users, things are even more favorable. Starting with the Radeon HD 5450, other descendants all supports DirectX 11. To remind you, the HD 5450 dates back when ATI was even a thing! So if you're running on HD 5450, it's very likely that you're not even able to play the game when it first launched.
