P50, mini Display Port ... direct connect 4k monitor?

I'm looking at a 4k external monitor, and had assumed the need for the Workstation dock for a DP 1.2 connection to the 4k monitor. 

 

Is the P50 (right side) mini Display Port able to drive direct connection to the external monitor (at 60hz etc) ... with a miniDP-to-DP adapter??

 

thanks

thanks kindly ... I'll give it a try.

 

my next question was DP cable spec; DP 1.1 or 1.2.  It seems there is no difference and readily available 1.1 cables will work.

See the Wiki for the differences between the various versions of DisplayPort.
