Alienware 15 R2 Laptop. Highest external monitor resolution supported.

Before I splash out on a UHD monitor for graphics work, I am trying to find out WHAT the maximum resolution through the HDMI interface is...

I have the installed graphics option: NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 965M with 2GB GDDR5.


Yes, I have scoured through the forums and have found nothing... Any hints or relevant information would be appreciated. The SPEC sheets for these laptops are useless.
