There isn't enough information to definitively tell one way or another. However, the labeling is incorrect. Premium is not a recognized type of HDMI cable. That's usually a sign of "buyer beware". The user reviews aren't very helpful either.

Definitely doesn't meet the HDMI Org's cable labeling requirements for adopters. It's probably a Standard Speed cable that works with 1080p/60. Don't expect to push it much further than that if you decide to one day go with higher resolutions.

At around $22 USD, plus shipping, for a 3m generic standard HDMI cable, I wouldn't consider it. Here in the USA, you can easily get a high speed HDMI cable that length for $5.00 plus shipping.
