10.2 gbps only. Won't support Dolby vision, deep color etc etc. No point in buying 10.2 gbps cables these days

28 AWG is a measure of wire thickness.


The higher the number the thinner the wire.
28 AWG means the copper wire inside the cable has a diameter of 0.0126 inches. The force to break this copper is 4.5 lbs.
A 25 AWG wire while also very thin would have a force of 9 lbs.
An 18 AWG wire would require 47lbs to break.

yes. 10.2 gbps should be a message to everyone to not buy. i had several "high speed" hdmi cables that blinked/crashed when i finally got a 4k60 videocard and set the color space to 4:4:4 8bit or 4:2:0/4:2:2 10/12-bit. Frown definitely get yourself 18gbps cables now rather than later.

Thank you and repped. I'm going to check out that link. Im replacing all the cables in my house. For new devices. Some will be in the wall, so want to make sure everything is as up to date as possible.

His comment made it sound like 28awg was unacceptable.

If you are going to put this in the wall then spend a little more as you might to be future proof. 28awg will not give you the signal you need plus you will need shielding.

These are throw away cables good for 1080.

I understand this cable supports 4K. Since it doesn't mention that it supports HDR, am I to assume that it doesn't?

That is somewhat irrelevant when it comes to HDMI cables because there are 19 wires running in an HDMI cable so making the wire size larger means you make 19 larger wires in the cable. The wire size really comes in play with the transfer of data and distance. If you plan to do a run of a 100' cable then get the biggest gauge possible. The signal quality from your device will degrade over distance so larger gauge means better signal over longer distance.
Also with the jacket around the 19/28AWG wires I can guarantee that it will withstand more than 4.5 lbs of force.
Lastly if installing in-wall then make sure you get a cable with a fabric or mesh jacket to help prevent cutting the jacket during installation.

Agree with everything that's been said here. Had 28 gauge and had multiple issues with a PS4 Pro and Xbox One. Swapped out for monoprice 18gbps and it resolved all issues.

These are useless if you have a 4K TV
