What is Core HDMI and Coreless HDMI

Hello Guys,
I have question. I was going through the manual of Samsung sound bar HW-Q90R and I came across this line:

"We recommend you use a coreless HDMI cable if possible. If you use a cored HDMI cable, use one whose diameter is less than 0.55 inches (14 mm)."

I was wondering what is core and coreless HDMI and how does one differentiate between them.

I am sorry if this has been asked before but I could not find an answer out there.

Thanks,
Rohit

Yep. Which really don't do anything. I've used both and there really isn't any difference unless you are running your HDMI cables VERY close to an HV (high voltage) cable.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
