PlayStation 5 arrives with HDMI 2.1 cable

In recent days, after the lifting of the embargo, many media have started to talk about PlayStation 5. This situation is natural, since that is why Sony made the new console available. However, for those who have been following the news more closely, they know that one of the biggest criticisms that has been raised is the fact that many media reports that the console does not arrive with an HDMI 2.1 cable.

That being said, because the cable present in the console packaging, only refers to High Speed, unlike Ultra High Speed, which is present in the cable of the new Xbox Series X. This has led to think that the cable present on the PlayStation 5 box, it was simply HDMI 2.0. However, Sony recently denied this information, confirming that the cable present, although it only appears High Speed, is an HDMI 2.1 cable.

The cable on PlayStation 5 is HDMI 2.1

For those who do not know, an HDMI 2.1 cable is essential to take full advantage of the hardware potential, if you have a television capable of supporting 4k resolution at 120Hz. Obviously, games must also support this resolution accompanied by 120fps, and for now, few are still those who support it.

Either way, making a cable available with this feature will allow users to have what they need when games with this capability hit the market.

And given the new information, neither PlayStation 5 nor Xbox Series X owners will have to worry about this cable, as they support all the good technology has to offer right now.
