Why Gamers need HDMI 2.1

Why Gamers need HDMI 2.1

Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X launch HDMI 2.1 ports in November 2020, which means that PS 5 / XSX can run any supported game at 120 frames per second right out of the box, giving players the ability to play games at the highest level.The PS5 and XSX are the first mainstream consumer electronics on the market with HDMI 2.1 chipsets. Due to the significant increase in HDMI 2.1 bandwidth and the addition of several new features, in early 2021, many devices will no longer adapt to the situation brought by the HDMI 2.1 interface, which is very common.

If you're a gamer, HDMI 2.1 can more accurately transmit fast-moving content across the screen for a more immersive gaming experience. This is achieved through a new technology called Auto Low Latency Mode, which will automatically adjust the TV's settings to ensure fast-moving content doesn't slow things down. In other words, delays can be thrown aside.

What benefits can HDMI 2.1 bring to gamers?

1.HDMI 2.1 uses Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Quick Frame Transfer (QFT) technology. If you've heard of AMD's FreeSync or NVIDIA's G-SYNC on gaming monitors, it's easy to understand that HDMI 2.1 brings the same technology to TVs and game consoles. With the help of VRR, the console will be able to stream video frames as fast as possible, stabilizing them and improving the visual experience. With the help of QFT, latency will be reduced, ensuring your screen doesn't spend too much time rendering what the console or graphics card is sending.

2.The ALLM function (Auto Low Latency Mode) allows a source (video game console or PC graphics card) to send a signal to the TV to automatically switch to an optimized mode with low input lag, usually a gaming mode. This is essential for all games that require extremely fast timing and perfect responsiveness, such as FPS and racing games.

3.Dynamic High Dynamic Range (HDR) 

Compared with the static High Dynamic Range (HDR) introduced by HDMI 2.0, the dynamic HDR introduced by HDMI 2.1 can be processed differently for each scene, or even each frame, so that the scene can be presented more realistically.

To take full advantage of the increased bandwidth of HDMI 2.1 and all the features that come with it, you must use the new HDMI 2.1 standard cables. Since the HDMI2.1 cable has the same connector design as the previous old version, it can be used with all HDMI-enabled devices, and can be used with any HDMI interface.  This FIBBR Quantum Optic HDMI cable may be your good choice.
