Monster 8K HDMI cables?
Well, technically they aren’t wrong as it’s pretty easy to support compressed 8k which requires considerably less than 48gbs. Remember, 2.1 encompasses compressed and uncompressed high bit-depth and/or high resolution. Due to the needs of supporting 8k, it’s doubtful we’ll see consumer devices that support 8k over hdmi without compression. As a result, it’s very likely that we’ll see 8k work just fine over today’s 2.0b “certified high speed” cables for runs that aren’t very long.
The issue won’t so much be the cabling as it will be making sure that the source, display, and any pass through devices (AVRs) support 2.1 compression (and we’re an easy year out from that)
