Will a Gigabyte RX 560 4GB run two monitors at 60Hz at the same time? One 2160p the other, 1440p?

I asked this in another thread but didn't get an answer so though I'd try here.

I'm considering buying a Gigabyte RX 560 4GB tomorrow but I need to make sure that it can run a 2160p 60Hz monitor and a 1440p 60Hz monitor at the same time both 60Hz.

I'm going to use the HDMI for the 4K monitor and DVI for the 1440p monitor. The card says it can run an 8K monitor over DisplayPort so I'm guessing it'll easily be able to power these two displays but I want to be sure.

Can't guarantee anything, but it should work just fine. As long as you have the right cables (Dual Link DV-I/D and HDMI)

It should be able to run 8K+4K+WQXGA at 60Hz.

It might support up to 6 monitors total on Windows by splitting the DisplayPort.

The hurdle is not on the card, but the MacOS. It may cost you some time, or even some 3rd party software / adaptor to achieve that.

Mac has no problem connecting one screen to each port on the card.

You will probably need to go Display Port to HDMI, possibly via an active adaptor, on the 4k display. That's what works for me with an RX460. To get 60Hz, I needed SwitchResX software to make it go with earlier versions of Sierra, but that add on software may not be necessary under 10.12.6.

I have a second display running via single-link DVI.

I think my MBP2011 did not support 4k60 on the RX 460 HDMI with Sierra and I had to go through DisplayPort.
