I have various HDMI cables from multiple gadgets, and I don’t even know what HDMI version they support. So I decided to standardize and future-proof all my HDMI cables at home to make them more uniform.
I opted for HDMI 2.1 because it supports all the latest standards, 8K@60 resolution, 48 Gbps bandwidth, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), etc.
