Can I run 3440 x 1440 at 60hz through usb-c 3.1 (gen 1)?

I just bought a ultrawide monitor but the cable that came with it is a display port 1.4 cable. I use a laptop so mine doesn't have a DP port. I used an HDMI cable that was lying around but it only runs at 3440 X 1440 50Hz. The laptop has an Intel UHD 620 graphics card that according to Intel supports 4k 60hz, so it should easily do 3440 X 1440 at 60hz or even 75Hz right? But I think the problem might be the cable being HDMI 1.4. 

 

So now I am stuck between two choices. To buy a USB-C 3.1 (gen 1) to Display port cable. Or a HDMI 2.0 cable. 

The problem with the USB-C is that I don't know if it will run 3440 X 1440 at 60hz since it is usb 3.1 (gen 1)

The problem with the HDMI cable is that I don't know if my laptop port supports HDMI 2.0. 

 

Can somebody help please? Which one should I buy?

Xiaomi Mi 34

Seems you can only get 60Hz beyond 1080p if you use a Thunderbolt 3 adapter or the HP USB-C dock G4.

No, I only want to buy a single cable from laptop to the monitor. I use wireless peripherals. I am just not sure what resolution does my laptop ports support. 

 

Edit: Oh my bad. I didn't read the thunderbolt 3.

But what if I want to buy the hdmi cable. Is there any way to tell what HDMI port my laptop has?

The spec sheet says 

 

HDMI Supports resolutions up to 4K 30Hz

 

So it would not be 2.0.
