Is there any drawback of using a converter to connect a laptop hdmi to monitor dp, or are both options valid?

I need to connect laptop gpu via display port to enable g-sync on my freesync (g-sync compatible) monitor.

It says, USB 3.1 Type-C 1st Gen (with function of displayport 1.2)

What does this mean? Will it limit the Hz at which I can output my display to my monitor? Will I need an adapter to use it?
Why are you talking about Type C connection, you have an answer in your other post https://forums.tomsguide.com/threads/how-to-connect-144hz-laptop-to-144hz-monitor.469925/#post-1936583
Use the mini display port on the laptop
