It will handle 4k but it won’t be a perfectly fluid experience. QHD will be smoother. Be sure to use the display output(s) on your graphics card rather than the ones on your motherboard if you aren’t already.
Depends on what you mean by "handle", and handle "what".
As of 2016, most PCs will be able to drive a 4K monitor without any issues. If you’re editing photos, browsing the web or simply using the extra real estate to have multiple windows open at once, even integrated graphics chips should handle the extra pixels (namely any CPU that has integrated graphics which says it supports 4k in its specification).
Then the next dependence is the port and cables that you use to connect. Looks like HDMI™
4K60 Support does it.
Once you get into 4k videos (include games) then your 8192MB ATI Radeon RX 480 Graphics drives 4k no problem, like Battlefield 1

It will run BF1 at 4k/30 at ultra but I wouldn't expect anything more.
Regarding my original post I will NOT be using this to play games or watch movies.ONLY photo editing and maybe video editing...nothing more.My pc has both HDMI AND DP

Sorry, I was replying to the other poster who said it would run BF1 "4k no problem"

But yeah like others said it will run a 4k monitor without any issues on both HDMI and DP.
