Actually no. Those are the monitors they verified. They allow to test gsync on other monitors. You can already find a few videos where people test theirs and it works. Anyway, my question was about the cable.

The card is GTX 1060 and monitor ASUS VG245H. Card has the display port, but monitor doesn't thats why I asked about the DisplayPort to HDMI.

Doing some searching, and I found this. I would say it will not work, as G-sync requires display port. My Freesync, over HDMI info must have been outdated.

Even though AMD Radeon GPUs and some FreeSync monitors support Adaptive Sync over HDMI, Nvidia says you’ll need to connect your GeForce GPU to your FreeSync monitor using a DisplayPort cable to activate variable refresh rates. (G-Sync monitors only work over DisplayPort as well.)
