Windows 7: 4k Monitor 780ti Display Port Q.

4k Monitor 780ti Display Port Q.

Hi all,

I just ordered a new monitor, the Samsung U28E590D. My gfx card is an MSI GTX 780ti.

I read that without HDMI 2.0 I won't be able to get 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and only 4:2:0 with hdmi 1.4.

I don't really know what that means but from what I've read it can effect colours so now I'm worried about my purchase.

The monitor has a display port 1.2 and so does my graphics card. If I connect them this way with a display port cable included with the monitor will I get the 4:4:4 and not sacrifice any display quality? Or is the 4:4:4 only achievable with HDMI 2.0?
