Hdmi 2.1 - Early 2019?

I was planning on waiting till early 2019 and I think I can despite panel occasionally flickering but.. I recently had a discussion with someone and he was trying to convince me that I was underestimating the time it will take [testing/authorizing devices].

Do you guys think TVs will start having HDMI 2.1 as of early 2019? I am a gamer and those features are features are really needed [VRR, Full RGB 4K] and I know I will regret it when new consoles are released.

No. Blame hdmi llc, chipsets are not ready to be provided to manufacturers.

I understand 2018 is a no-go but you don't think the 2019 lines will?

Samsung told some people at CES that the 2018 Samsung QLEDs will have VRR using HDMI 2.0. They may have even demoed this at CES behind closed doors with no pictures allowed. See the YouTube video from Vincent at HDTVtest. Full RGB 4K will require HDMI 2.1 data rates.

I think not, for TV's to have the chipsets in 2019, the chipsets would have to be provided this year when the TV's go into production. will manufacturers have access to hdmi 2.1 chipsets (48 gbps compliant) this year? doubtful. 2020 for hdmi 2.1 rollout in consumer devices I would say.

HDMI 2.1 was finally ratified around October/November of last year and the design specs were sent to the device mfrs. 2019 will probably be the earliest that consumer devices will start to have them. Cable connections is still a problem so it will be interesting to see how that is overcome. Last I read the cable length was still limited to 3m. Hopefully that will be a non-issue once the fully compliant HDMI 2.1 devices are released. Be prepared to purchase or upgrade (if possible) all of your devices to take full advantage of HDMI 2.1
