What cable to use to connect Precision 5510 to P2715Q for 4k 60Hz display

I have a Precision 5510 laptop that I have connected to a P2715Q monitor using the HDMI out of the laptop to HDMI in of the monitor. I am getting a 4k 30Hz output. How should I connect to get a 4k 60Hz output? Should I use:

  1. USB-C ->
    1. DisplayPort USB-C
    2. Mini Display port
    3. HDMI
  2. HDMI ->
    1. DisplayPort USB-C
    2. Mini Display port
    3. HDMI

1 and 2 are from the laptop and a, b and c are in the monitor.

A computer HDMI out port cannot upconvert to a monitor DP (DisplayPort) or mDP (Mini DisplayPort) without adding an expensive active converter.

When using the P2715Q DP in port or mDP in port, Display- MST (page 33) in the OSD (On Screen Display) should be set to Off to get 4k2k 3840x2160 60Hz.

If using P2715Q HDMI in port, press the Green Check key for 12 seconds to enable HDMI 2.0. The default is HDMI 1.1.

Precision 5510 TB3/USB-C out port --> TB3/USB-C to DP cable --> P2715Q DP in port
