I'm trying to achieve a dual monitor setup with 2 4k monitors at 60hz a piece. I have the first monitor coming out of a 1050 ti with only 1 HDMI port going into the first 32 inch 4k tv and that works just fine. I have the other HDMI cable coming out of the Gigabyte Aorus z390 i9 9900k on board graphics and it runs at 4k 30hz. I can't change it to 60 unless I drop it down to 1080p. I've switched the cables respectively to make sure it wasn't them and got the exact same result. Is the 9900k not capable of 4k60hz display or am I missing something? I know this issue will end when I get a 3080 and the card has 3 HDMI ports, but who knows when that will be since everything is still sold out and I'm still rocking my good friend 1050 ti. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for any responses.

I figured it had something to do with display port, but my board doesn't have any of those so I decided to buy a 4k60hz display port to hdmi cable for the graphics card. Once I got it, and plugged it in, it would only support 4k30hz so I sent it back. The manufacture emailed me back with a picture of them using it at 4k60hz so that confused me further. So I guess waiting for the 3080 is my only option if I want this to work.

 

Edit: also, if it only goes up to 24hz, why am I getting 30hz?

bandwidth i suppose.. 2304*4096=9,4m Vs 2160*3840=8,3m

it's probably possible to force monitor compatibility for mid resolutions at 60 FPS, I expect something around 1440p 60

Unfortunately, this presents another issue. Right now, I have two 4k monitors on the wall at the same resolution and they're the same digital size. When I was running one 4k monitor on the left and 1 1080p monitor on the right, I'd have to drag things into the corner and wiggle it around to find the other screen. That might be a little exaggeration, but it's something that bothers me and I don't want that to be an issue. The biggest issue was windows trying to resize opening them up on different monitors. If I opened up a program or app that was on the 4k screen previously, it wouldn't scale to the 1080p equivalent and I'd have to use snap to because the top bar was so far gone in space that there would be no hope to reach it. I imagine 2k would present the same problem so my solution is to get a card with 2 hdmi ports in the future.

from Windows you can move those monitors but dimension is based only on resolution.

I know I can move the monitors, but the problem is 2k is half the digital screen size and I'll have dead end corners. It's either that or I deal with 30hz and not have that issue.
