The new standard promises no-lag gaming, amazing high-definition, and officially reigns in the time of 8K HDMI cables. It’s been years since HDMI cables first hit the market. Discarding older connectors and confusing audio-video cables, they ushered in a time of a single standard home theater cable fully capable of carrying amazing audio and video signals. In the past decade, there’s been continual improvement towards making HDMI cables better and better. As TV technology has progressed, that has meant upgrading to 4K and now to 8K. Prior to HDMI 2.1, cables could not support 8K content at 60 frames per second. Now, for the first time, they can.


That’s not the only feature to get excited about relating to HDMI 2.1 cables. These cables also come with several support features including variable refresh rates, dynamic HDR, and quick media switching. In an era where we are connecting more and more devices and software to our flat-screens, using an HDMI 2.1 cable, you’ll find it easier than ever to switch between signals. Needless to say, if you’re looking for fast refresh rates, home theater HDMI cables like this are perfect. For gamers, home theater enthusiasts, and others in need of that reliable, fast signal, this marks a significant improvement over the prior standard.


The biggest proving ground for the HDMI 2.1 cable will be the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games as they are set to be broadcast by NHK, Japan’s national public broadcaster, in 8K-120. For as much hoopla as 4K has received, expect 8K’s marketing push to be even bigger. Though not a future-proof cable by any means, this iteration of an HDMI cable is capable of going up to 10K at 120 Hz. Sure, not everyone needs 8K resolution. For those that love that crystal clear high-definition experience though, there’s nothing as advanced as this. Furthermore, those obsessed with virtual reality (VR), this is a sector targeting high resolution and high frame rates.


All in all, HDMI 2.1 cables is the go-to home theater cable for 4K, 8K, and beyond. As we move towards more advanced television broadcasts and an era of 8K TVs, suit up with the most advanced HDMI cable available.
