If they are using the term "Ultra High Speed" then that implies, following the naming guidelines and recommendations by HDMI.org, that the cable has been certified. That being said, there are still cable mfrs who have been using the term UHS (Ultra High Speed) for quite some time now in their marketing without HDMI.org approved certification. The XBox may have the latest iteration of HDMI 2.1 chipsets but unless your sink device (tv) has the same chipsets, you'll be relegated to HDMI 2.0 option sets as far as reliability goes. VRR is possible with the current HDMI 2.0 chipsets and so is ALLM (as far as I know). There is also no mention of the "up to" bandwidth.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
