    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

      Wrong. It's like saying there's no difference between CAT5 and CAT6 ethernet cables. They're rated for different speeds. You're not running 4K over an old cable as they just can't handle it.

    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.
