Just to give more evidence here is the log from my desktop (the machine I
want to upgrade to 4k [currently looking at a gt1030 and Acer CB282K for
the upgrade [both are listed in /usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README
as being fully supported with driver version 390]):

ask why I have the newer card in a non-desktop ;-) ... answer: laziness
since there is no substantial difference for my current setup):
