I think in general its a mistake to announce a product if they wont release it soon after, it has been almost a year now and no more information has been given. Not a big deal as they are much bigger problems in life 🙂 but personally I lost interest in the adapter, and generally trust AMD and nvidia more with releasing a product when they announce it.
the rx5950xt is rumored to be 30% faster than the 2080ti, for much cheaper. But then the rtx 3080ti will be 50% faster than the 2080ti for a bit more expensive ( nvidia said that the 3080ti will be cheaper than the 2080ti at launch ) Honestly I ll just go for the first one to be released, as long as hdmi 2.1 is fully supported, and I can finally get my lg c9 at 4k 120hz, 10 bits 🙂
we know for a fact that the Amd gpu inside de ps5 has hdmi 2.1 already . Nvidia and amd also confirmed that their next gen gpu will be able to unlock 4k 120 fps full chroma on Lg C9 – C10 etc. About the dates : everything will be out for this summer. The hdmi.org standard could just come after and is not important . In the past it was the same story with hdmi 2.0.
as for the cables, i got 2x CAC 1080. first one was working on and off, with black screen etc, then stopped working, i bought a second one on amazon, and it was the same, I was runing a lg c9 4k 60hz 4.4.4 chroma with a gtx1080ti. From what I understand, the voltage or something is not stable at this resolution and the cable damdages itself with time. ( and I am clearly not the only one that got the issue )
I did not try getting a free replacement as shipping where is live just takes too long.
Could you share your sources on the definitive inclusion of HDMI 2.1 on the AMD GPU and the PS5 i am not able to find that information. since i am a tech interested myself i would love to read up on HDMI2.1 even I have been waiting on it for a while 🙂
The information is given in a few CES interviews by youtubers etc. When asked about Lg cX capabilities, Nvidia representative states that today their graphics cards cant utilise full hdmi 2.1 capabilities, but that as soon as their next gpu is out, people will be able to use all of hdmi2.1 and also stated that lg c9 will be able to be ran at 4k 120hz 10bits at full chroma subsampling, with gsync etc. As for Amd, it is known in the specs already that the Xbox series X and Ps5 have a custom Navi next gen gpu, that will enable 8k 60 hz gaming, as well as true 4k 120 hz through hdmi + Variable refresh rate etc . ( we know that only hdmi 2.1 is capable of this ) Common sense then will tell you that if amd did include hdmi 2.1 on the ps5 and Xbox next gen Gpu, then they will also include it in the Rx5900xt series coming soon.
