Do you really need a specific HDMI cable that has "120hz capability" or is this nonsense?
Its nonsense , 120hz is a processing technique applied to the signal by your Display electronics "after" it has travelled down the cable to your TV.
So the cable cant possibly have anything to do with it.
Ignore 120hz claims but some source devices can use higher bandwidth i.e. higher colour bit depth etc and this can cause an issue with some cables especially as the length increases.
If you want to ensure you have a cable that is capable of supporting the full capability of current HDMI then look for a CAT2 certified (at the required length) product. You don't need to spend a lot as there are decent products that start around £10 for short lengths.
