If you have a somewhat recent CPU, then you should have no problem playing 4k in software-only decode or partial hardware acceleration as long as your GPU has the appropriate output bandwidth support. HDMI 1.3 should get you to 4k30 for watching 4k videos. A laptop from the Radeon 530 era would be pre-Ryzen and might be a little lacking in the CPU performance department for 4k software decode.
