Will 4k Monitor work with late 2013 MacBook Pro

Hi, I want to get a 27" external monitor for my MacBook Pro (spec's below). Can it actually output 4k (or UHD, or whatever it's called) via the display port? Would it be worth me getting a UHD 27" display like the ASUS PB287Q, 28'' 4K (3840x2160) monitor and will the MBP be able to make good use of the 4k display?

If not, would I be better off with an older Apple 27" LED Cinema Display which I believe is 2560x1440?

I'm not an expert and have been confused by what I have read online so will appreciate any pointers. Thanks

Spec's of my Mac: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
