G751 GTX970M 4K Display via HDMI

Level 7
Hi All,

I have searched and researched through various platform including Nvidia graphic card infos, it doesn't give me a clear picture of what i'm trying to clarify.
"Displays can be connected with a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels via DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 2.0 (no HDCP @ 4K)."
4K is one of the features for supported tech.

And I've read it somewhere that Asus G751 is only equipped with HDMI 1.4 and I think it's either Cnet or similar review site.
Linus has mentioned Asus G751 comes with HDMI 1.4 on one of his review video.

And someone on this forum mentioned that somehow he was able to overcome by just using HDMI 2.0 cable but without any solid evidence. I understand that HDMI 1.4 is capable only at 24hz and HDMI 2.0 at 60hz. Since I do not have any tool to test, I'm not able to research that myself unfortunately.

So I would really appreciate if someone who still has/use G751 with GTX970m and 4K monitor/TV can confirm if 4K is capable on this beast.

My plan is to use G751 as a source of 4K movie via HDMI 2.0 to 4K TV.

For now I'm hoping for good news!
