HDMI to DisplayPort | Will it make it 4k@60 compatible?

Hello, I just had a question regarding a small thing that maybe some people can help me out with. I have one single HDMI port on my computer and a VGA port. I also have Intel HD 630 Integrated Graphics. This is rated for up to 4096x2304@24Hz (on HDMI, and 24-30hz counts for anything above 1080p I have noticed), but, it is also rated for up to 4096x2304@60Hz (on DP, and eDP). I am running off of a Sony TV, with only HDMI ports, and supports up to 4k@120z if I remember correctly on certain things. I was wondering if I connect a 4K@60Hz capable HDMI to DP adapter to my computers HDMI, and to my TVs HDMI, and then run a DP to DP cable to both of the adapters, would I be able to run at up to 4096x2304@60Hz, instead of the 24Hz. It's really annoying that I don't have the option to run at anything but 24 to 30Hz, as it's kind of unbearable compared to say 60Hz. (Sorry if this question seems dumb, I personally know nothing about DP or it's subsidiaries.)

If your device looks something like above, then you could try as described here:

1. Set color format to "YCBCR_420"

2. Set refresh rate to 60 Hz afterwards.

 

This should fit into the bandwidth of HDMI 1.4b that Intel HD Graphics 630 built in Kaby Lake processors provides.

If the above method doesn't work, try the steps below to set the HDMI signal format on your Sony TV:

You should be able to set the signal format for every available HDMI input of the TV separately. Choose the one where your computer device is connected. Change HDMI signal format to Standard format. This forces the signal input to YCbCr 4:2:0 300 MHz TMDS.
