Although Intel claims the onboard graphics (530) should support 3840 x 2160 (hdmi 2.0), my motherboard apparently does not. So far I'm not suffering using 30P Hz, so for now I'm just going to leave it that way. Micro Center, which sold me and supports the Powerspec g403 computer I'm using, suggested a Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 GV-N1030D5-2GL Low Profile 2G Computer Graphics Card as a budget card that would support hdmi 2.0, $80 on Amazon, $90 at Micro Center. If I decide to upgrade to hdmi 2.0 I may go with the next card up, the GeForce GTX 1050.
