HDMI 2.1 : Why you’ll need it in the near future 

Trevon Martin • October 18, 2022


Let’s get straight to the point, the 8K and 4K120 takeover is around the corner. If you plan on implementing 8K or 4K120 compatible displays or devices, you’ll need to double check that you have the correct HDMI standard. For your 4K displays, you most likely use HDMI 2.0 which has a bandwidth of 18gbps, supporting resolutions up to 4K60. HDMI 2.1 is a standard update that increases the bandwidth to 48gbps, supporting resolutions up to 8K60 and 4K120. Needless to say, you’re going to need some HDMI 2.1 cables soon. 


The Benefits of 4K120


With 4K120, users can experience ultra-fast motion UHD images. 4K120 is perfect for sports, action movies, high-performance gaming and VR. What makes 4K120 so fast? A 4K120 resolution has a 120Hz refresh rate. The refresh rate of your display refers to how many times per second the display is able to produce a new image. The refresh rate is measured in Hertz (Hz). 


The Benefits of 8k60


8K delivers an immersive viewing experience with 2X the horizontal and vertical resolution of 4K, and 4 times as many pixels. Also, with the 60Hz refresh rate, users can enjoy smooth and sharp content quality with high-speed action.
