Probably the cable. From what I've read, you need a Mini DisplayPort 1.2 Cable to HDMI 2.0 Active Adapter.
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.

The SP6 has a Kaby Lake processor which supports 4K at 24Hz via HDMI or 4K at 60Hz via DP. Alternatively, you may need to connect to the second/external display via powered dock and not a direct connection from the SP6.
