" ...  I used a crappy HDMI to Displayport adapter which I reviewed as follows: "This will mess up your displayed image by limiting it to "limited range ycbr420" instead of full range RGB. ... The "low" HDMI setting is actually just there to compensate for this and doesn't actually "fix" the problem as it just makes EVERYTHING darker / brighter to fake it. ... Otherwise the HDMI isn't 2.0 enabled and you'll be stuck with a VERY CHOPPY AND LAGGY 4K 30hz - idk what went wrong but with my R9 270 this was unusably choppy.  ...  "
