    What is the minimum recommendation for a videocard supporting 4k for desktop work only (not gaming)?

    Something like a GT1030 would be good.

    I don't know how new is the GT1030, but it is still difficult to find where I live. I could wait, but is there any other recommendation from NVIDIA (or AMD) at about the same price?

    There's an RX550 that's new about $100 USD

    Don't think any older AMD models support 4k60hz.

    Nvidia 9xx series supports it though, maybe a used GTX 950/960 if you can find one

    1030 is relatively new product so might have to wait a bit for stock to show up

    As Agent suggested, something like Rx550 will be enough, or 1050.

    RX550 is still much more expensive than GT1030 here. And I think the best choice among GT1030 cards, that makes sense to buy is the following:

    https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GT-1030-2G-LP-OC.html#hero-overview

    It's a single slot card and has an HDMI (v.2.0b) and a DisplayPort (v.1.4).

    All other cards that I have seen either require two slots or have a DVI-D instead of a DisplayPort.

    Has anyone seen a different GT1030 videocard with the same specifications?

    Standard is DVI + DP so I don't think you will find anything else..
    The card is still pretty much brand new.

    Actually none of the cards that are currently available has DVI-D and DisplayPort. Most are DVD-D and HDMI. There are only two cards from MSI that have HDMI and DisplayPort.
