Will a late 2012 macmini "see" a 4k monitor?

I am thinking of buying a 4k monitor (DELL). For now, I am using a macmini from late 2012, so there's no 4k capability. But until I get a newer machine, can I use the 4k monitor with the macmini, displaying in the macmini's maximum resolution (2K)? Or will it not even "see" the monitor, that is, send it a usable image, because the monitor is 4K and not 2K?

It all comes down to connectivity. The Mac mini has an HDMI output. If the 4K monitor has an HDMI input, I see no reason why the Mac mini wouldn't see it and use it at the max resolution that the Mac mini is capable of. Most 4K monitors have DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs so I would be surprised if it didn't connect.

Thanks, JR, much appreciated! I got a similar response from a user at Apple's forums, so I am taking this as a green light.
Cheers!
