Can the Elgato HD60 Pro output 4K to my monitor?

Hello everyone! So i'm about to buy an Elgato HD60 Pro for some casual game streaming, and I was wondering if I could take a 4K source (my GPU) plug that into my Elgato HD60 Pro (which records footage at 1080p) then plug the HD60 Pro into my monitor (and get 4K displayed). Now, the Elgato HD60 Pro is an internal capture card, and records footage at 1080p, Im just not sure if it will output to my monitor at 4K, which is what my GPU is set to. If needed, here are my current specs:


Monitor: ASUS MG24UQ 4K 60 Hz Gaming Monitor

CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K (Overclocked to 4.5 GHz)

Motherboard: MSI Z170A Gaming M5

RAM: Avexir Core Series DDR4 2400

GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (50 MHz overclock on the core) (Outputting 4K)

PSU: Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850w 80+ Platinum

Storage: (Boot Drive) Kingston 120gb SSDnow | (Mass Storage Drive) Seagate Barracuda Compute 3TB 7200 RPM HDD


(If anything was confusing in my original question, this may help:)


GPU (4K Output) ----------> Elgato HD60 Pro (Records at 1080p) ----------> Monitor (4K Input) 


Any answers are appreciated, I really do not want to spend upwards of $200 on the Elgato 4K60 Pro for no reason. Anyways thanks in advance you guys!

Well the specs say


Output: HDMI (pass-through) up to 1080p60

looks like no.

Nope. Isn’t supposed to be use as a pass for though anyway. 


Duplicating is always better but it’s too tricky getting the games to stay at higher than 1080 when streaming. 


Best to just get a better capture card that’s designed for it.
