how to Connect Soundbar 700 through PC GPU HDMI port?

Soundbar: Bose soundbar 700
Motherboard: Z370 AORUS ULTRA
GAMING 2.0
GPU: Nvidia geforce 1060 6GB

I want to connect my PC to the soundbar which i mentioned above, I have optical output in motherboard which works perfectly, but i want to try it in HDMI out of GPU because of higher bitrate.

I connected HDMI from GPU to soundbar, but no sound.

Also noticed nvidia output high definition audio device not plugged in

Don't know how to enable output device and change settings.

I also read somewhere that SPDIF out cable may connect to the GPU, but i checked GPU that there is no connector like that. Graphics driver updated.

 This will not work !!! The specification of the devices is different. Maximum you can try Bluetooth

+ the difference between the latest hdmi version and SPDIF in terms of sound transmission is not certain, only when watching 4k movies with DTS format.

The biggest difference is that HDMI can pass higher-resolution audio, including the formats found on Blu-ray: Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. These formats can't get transmitted across optical.
