Question Do HDMI 2.0a cables exist yet?


Established Member

I'm looking at running some HDMI cables through my wall / chimney and have just ordered an OLED 4k TV.

I want to make it future proof, i.e. lay cables for ultra-hd blu-ray player.

I believe HDMI 2.0a is required for 4k HDR content.

Do quality HDMI 2.0a cables exist to buy yet?

HDMI.org have recently announced a third category of HDMI cable (Premium High Speed) to 'better' clarify compatibility with the new UHD '4K' capable Sources - see HDMI :: Press Release

I doubt anyone will exceed the current 8m 'benchmark' which High Speed tops out at so you may want to run a couple of CAT6 as a backup.

I doubt we will see any 'Premium High Speed' cables for a while yet - a decent conduit is your best option for now.
