Question Can a GPU output Sound and Video through different ports?

I'm in the run of making an SFF HTPC for living room gaming. I'm debating what monitor to go for, and I think I'll be jumping at a 4K screen (as nobody makes big enough monitors that aren't these days). I want to stick with an AMD card so I was thinking about going with an R9 Fury.

DisplayPort is pretty much required for 60Hz 4K output as AMD cards don't include HDMI 2.0, however my 5.1 AV receiver is too old to have a DisplayPort, it's got HDMI.

Here's the question; can I run video through the DisplayPort and audio through the HDMI port?

I really don't want to get an NVIDIA card due to both price and morally supporting the little guy, but if I can't separate a decent digital audio output I can use without replacing my sound system as well I may just have to.
