Yes, or 1 and 2 meters. I’ve heard some say they’re getting faster handshakes with HDMI 2.1 certified cables, but they only come in 3/6Ft or 1/2M. All my sources need 8’, and my TV needs 4’, this limits my choices but the MP Ultra Slims work well for me (they pass 4K/60 DV, the acid test to me). I hope eventually more 2.1 lengths become available and I’ll give them a try.
