Can I plugged my Chromecast directly to the GPU HDMI

Just kind of curious - what would be happening if instead of plugging the Chromecast to the TV or monitor HDMI, I am plugging the device directly to my GPU instead? 

 

I am annoyed by the fact that when plugging into a monitor or TV, my Chromecast can't take advantage of my PC hardwares that are directly connect to the same monitor. I am wondering if I am plugging it to my GPU which is connected to my PC instead, will I be able to access my PC hardware like Ethernet or speakers?

What?

 

The HDMI ports on your GPU are outputs, not inputs. No, you can't do that. 

 

I'm a big Chromecast user but why would you connect both a PC and a Chromcast to the same monitor? What is the purpose of the Chromecast at that point?

Yeah, tried that out just now and learnt it the hard way - lol

 

But to answer your question - to stream content of course. You can't get the vast majority of big streaming service to stream 4k HDR properly on Windows, that's the only reason I bought my Chromecat. I have HDR1000 monitor that double as a TV.

No, the Chromecast cannot use your PC's hardware even if you plug it into an HDMI input on your PC. For all it knows it's just plugged into a TV.

Dell owns my soul.

But it can access TV speaker output isn't it? Not too sure about ethernet but I guess you are right. Unless the GPU can do data pass through
