Is it possible use a conjunction of multiple adapters to output 4k at 60Hz on my PC?

Is it possible use a conjunction of multiple adapters to output 4k at 60Hz on my PC?  

 

Desktop: HP Slim Desktop - S01-pF1048xt

CPU: Intel Core i5-10400

GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630

Display: HP V28 4K

 

I have been having issues reaching the maximum resolution of my monitor. Due to my desktop’s motherboard only having one 1.4 HDMI output, my desktop is unable to output the maximum resolution of my CPU at 60Hz. My CPU is capable to output 4k at 60hz with a DisplayPort 1.2 cable, but my motherboard does not have a DisplayPort out. Initially, I thought I would just add a dedicated graphics card to my PC, but my PSU is only 180 watts and the motherboard is proprietary to HP. The only option left is to use a USB to DisplayPort 1.2 adapter. However, I am not entirely sure if my PC is capable of using USB ports as video outs.

 

My desktop has 4 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 5Gbps signaling rate ports on the front. Looking at the motherboard specifications, the USB ports are specifically USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports.

 

There are quite a few USB type A to DisplayPort 1.2 adapters on the market, but most of these adapters are pricey. Nevertheless, USB C to DisplayPort 1.2 adapters are rather affordable. Is it possible to use a USB A to USB C adapter in conjunction with a USB C to DisplayPort 1.2 adapter?

 

USB Type-A -- > USB Type-C -- > DisplayPort 1.2

 

I am not sure if this would cause compatibility or overheating problems to the USB port.

No, the connection won't work. The specs of your machine is

               https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06687599

 

Its HDMI 1.4 won't give your 4K 60Hz. It has following expansion slots

 

  • Two PCI Express slots (1 x PCIe x16 and 1 x PCIe x1)
  • One M.2 socket 1, Key A
  • One M.2 socket 3, Key M, (2280/2242)

The best option is to add a video card to the PCIe x16 to support 4K 60Hz monitor.

 

Regards.
