Is it true there is no such thing as a HDMI 2.0 cable?

The long-awaited HDMI 2.0 is here, with more 4K support, higher frame rate potential

opurt is wrong.
ALL HDMI cables have the EXACT SAME cables and pins aka all HDMI cables are the same UNLESS they say they support Ethernet (as they would have the Ethernet pins while normal HDMI does not)
there is no need for a 2.0 cable because it is digital tech.
the cable does not care about the data getting pushed though it
it ether works or does not
the "high speed" cables are just a marketing scheme to get more money from end users
the controller (in both the sending and receiving device) sets the speed and features they both can use
the connection will default to the lowest HDMI version available between the two

Basically there's low- and high- speed HDMI cables; low-speed are for earlier HDMI specs (up to HDMI 1.2 or 1.3) and high-speed supports everything including HDMI 2.0 and 2.1 and probably beyond. Sure, there are cables sold as HDMI 2.0 cables, but they're no different from most other high-speed HDMI cables.
High-speed cables have been the default for years now and all but the cheapest crap would support those speeds. Spending a lot of money on an HDMI 2.0 cable is usually just paying for marketing, the cables that come with devices are generally good enough.
