PS4 Pro 4K 30hz Over HDMI 1.4?

I've pre-ordered the GOW special edition PS4 Pro to be able to play GOW at 4K on my Acer Predator XB321HK monitor. I only just found out that I will not be able to do this using HDMI 1.4. As GOW pretty much maintains 30fps I thought I would just be able to set the PS4 Pro to 4K 30Hz, but it seems that since some firmware update has removed this option from the PS4 Pro. There are a few threads saying Sony would resolve this issue in a future patch but I have not seen anything confirming this, Why?

 

Is there a workaround that does not require me spending another £100-200 for a super rare HDMI 2.0 to Display Port 1.2 converter?

That's a fault of the monitor though surely?

 

It doesn't have a 2.0 port, just 1.4.

 

That's what is restricting you to hdmi 1.4, not the PS4.

 

Reviews of the monitor all pick up on this...

Having an HDMI 1.4 port is classified as a fault? Sure it's not desirable but it's not a fault.

If the PS4 at one time could output at 4K30hz then why is it not possible now?

My PC can output at 4K 30hz over HDMI 1.4.....

I bought the monitor for PC gaming the Display Port 1.2 has no problems at 4K60hz.

HDMI 1.4 means no HDR

I am aware my monitor is not HDR capable. I just wanted the ability to set the output resolution to 4K 30Hz.
