XPS 15 9560 Display Outputs?

Hey all,

 

So for a black Friday deal I purchased a BenQ EX3501R. A stunning 3440 x 1440 monitor running at 100hz with hdr support. I understand that the XPS 15 9560's HDMI port only supports HDMI 1.4, and through the usbc port display port 1.2 is natively supported. My question is, to run this monitor at full potential without HDR, a cable such as this should work right? (I hope so because I already ordered one).....

Would this other adapter support full res and refresh rate with HDR over HDMI? Im unclear on whether or not this adapter supports HDMI 2.0 and thus full res at 100hz and HDR.

Thank in advance!

I would strongly suggest getting a USB-C to DisplayPort adapter instead of HDMI. Why? Because then you don't have to worry about HDMI 1.4 vs 2.0, and DisplayPort is a better engineered connector. Plus, it's what most people recommend doing on Dell's forums, and also what I recommend doing having an XPS 15 9560 myself. Unfortunately, I don't have an ultrawide yet, but I use a USB-C dock at my 2nd job that plays nicely with the system.
