Question Does an HDMI 2.0 switch fix my problem?

So I want to achieve 4k@60HZ from my laptop to my samsung monitor.
The problem is that my laptop does not have an HDMI 2.0 port so achieving 4k@60HZ directly is not possible. That's when I learned about HDMI switch. But I am quite hesitant on how it works.
I am not sure whether it would work on my laptop because of its hdmi 1.4b port.
Has anyone had this kind of problem?

Well my laptop does not have a DP port as far as I can tell.
However, as you can see the laptop is capable of that resolution, that's why I thought of buying a switch since its hdmi port limits the resolution to only 4k@30hz. But a switch with hdmi 2.0 port might make up for that? What do you think? And if this is not possible, is there any other way to achieve 4k@60hz?

there probably some high end stuff might do that. but probably cost more than a new laptop the offer 60hz
