I would be willing to bid money that it is not humanly possible, since I'm guessing it's something like a difference of 1 in a million frames.

I Remember the first time i plug my PC at 4:4:4 in my first 4k TV with a Dollarama cable, it was a green pixelated mess!OneAndTrueHeir wrote: ↑ The logic doesn't fit. That only means that *your* particular cable can handle a full 18 Gbps signal. Some 10 Gbps cables might run at 18 Gbps, some won't. Most 18 Gbps will run at their full spec, faulty ones might not. But if you need a full 18 Gbps, you should buy a cable rated as such so that it has the best chance of working. And if it doesn't work, then you are fully justified to demand a replacement.
This sort of hyperbole helps absolutely nobody. There is not a single person in this thread genuinely advocating for that overpriced platinum plated, crystal embedded videophool BS. It is a simple matter of matching cable specifications to your needs.
If you have a 4k, HDR, WCG signal at 60 Hz with multichannel audio, you are pushing more than 10 Gbps down a cable. And it isn't a matter of 'oh, 1 in a million frames' is off...... if the cable bandwith is insufficient you will not get a picture at all, or you will get pixelation, sparklies, HDR will drop off, things like that.
So, it is entirely logical that you should buy a cable rated for 18 Gbps, just to be safe. You don't have to spend a ton of money, just meet the spec of the video signal you are using. And 10 Gbps cables are not rated for 4K at 60 Hz, which makes an 18 Gbps cable the correct choice.

Monoprice 115427 Certified Premium High Speed HDMI Cable, 4K @ 60Hz, HDR, 18Gbps, 28AWG, YUV 4:4:4, 3ft, Black https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01GCGKBWC/ref ... bDbCYKJGAG

Sorry for the late reply, but any passive "certified" high-speed cable "should" be able to handle the increase in bandwidth (18 Gbps) for lengths 2~3 meters (an active cable would typically work for longer runs), thats the reason the "high speed" certification withstood the HDMI updates, so the premium certificate at 6ft (length of this cable) doesn't add much, beside a laminated sticker, again these cables are not individually tested so there is no guarantee they won't be susceptible to manufacturing defects (even with the label stickered on them).

For that little price difference, i would go active, especially at 30'sirisak wrote: ↑ I am in market looking for 30 feet HDMI cable. I am eyeing at 2 different cables from monoprice

While the second one states as Active HDMI cable and considering the long distance(30 feet)...does it really matter ?
Any advice is greatly appreciated
