which card would do all codec playback and support 4k60

the ati rx550 or RX560 ? there both 4gb cards but the rx550 is £39 and the RX560 is £59 so £20 more but i dont want anything more thatn a good card that will play all video back as i am not going to game on there.

I know they both support hdmi 2.0b and Playready 3.0 support but i dotn want to spend more than i need to, i am also looking into netflix and other streaming services in 4k and h264 playback as the system only has a i3 cpu.

thanks for any help
I ended up going with the RX 560. Information seemed a little scarce, but the general consensus seemed to be that the 550 sometimes had a little trouble with 4k streaming. The 560 did not. So I decided to just pay a little more and be sure that I'd be able to stream 4k.
