Pretty sure 2.1 isn't on any projectors yet, just tvs. I would think next year it they will trickle in.

None at any price. Honestly, I don’t see much advantage there for most models of projectors to adopt it. Projectors are not going to offer resolutions north of 4K anytime soon and wide color gamut is something only available on a select few models. In theory, variable refresh would be nice but I suspect this tech will be incompatible with DLP and Epson JUST started selling projectors with HDMI 2.0.

In other words, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

HDMI 2.1 is something of a myth right now as HDMI.org hasn't actually released a finalized standard for the product.

Anyone buying HDMI 2.1 gear isn't buying a fully specified product.

The main use of HDMI 2.1 within devices is for the eARC feature today which works over 18Gb/s rated cables.

Don't expect much of anything to use the nearly 50Gb/s that HDMI 2.1 offers for several years to come. Let alone the complete lack of content.
