New gear won't be out this year with HDMI 2.1

One year later and here we are.. on the cusp of 2.1
It may take a while to stabilise... but I suspect mainstream AVR and TVs will have it by mid year.. so if you can tahan, things will be pretty exciting..

Everyone just relax. Let the new specs marinate first before jumping to it.

If talking about cables, I believed it will retain the high speed vs standard speed naming convention but with clear indication that it support up to 8k. I recalled reading somewhere in HDMI.org that the new fable will be marked as ultra high speed but number versioning should be refrained for product marketing/packaging. Maybe others can chip in as I might be wrong.

These cable upgrades are a PIA for ceiling-mounted projector users.. for my case I will need to rework the cabling concealment furnishing (i.e. breaking/reinstalling false ceiling, painting, etc.) which will involve a few renovation vendors. :(

I’m redoing my projector runs soon. Going to do dual fiber HDMI runs for redundancy. It’s a pain, but a necessity. I recommend for anyone to make the cable path in such a syvthst it can be easily replaceable by yourself.
