Can the AMD Radeon R5 M330 drive a 4k external monitor at the full 3840x2160 @ 60Hz?

Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a laptop with an AMD Radeon R5 M330 (2GB) GPU. I want to hook the laptop up to a 4k display when I'm at my desk, for working on some video editing (the footage I edit is usually at 1080p, but I guess that's not entirely relevant to my question). I just want to know before I spend the money, that this chip will actually recognise the 4k display and will be able to run it at the full 3840x2160 resolution, and 60Hz refresh rate.

 

The laptop does have a miniDP output.

 

I am a little confused about which GPU handles which output port since I think the intel i5-6200U and i7-6500U (which are the options I'm considering) both have integrated GPUs, and I've never bought one of these so I don't know how the system handles them alongside a dedicated gfx card like the AMD Radeon R5 M330. Any knowledgable advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks.
