The PlayStation 5 will debut in just over a week and there are still rumors and misinformation about the console. Part of it is related to the HDMI cable that comes with the hardware, which Sony has already confirmed to be HDMI 2.1.

Recently, GamePro, a major German media outlet, contacted Sony to inquire about the HDMI cable for the PlayStation 5. There they received confirmation that it is an HDMI 2.1 cable. That is, it has support for 4K and up to 120 fps.

In case you missed it: They confirm that Demon’s Souls will not have raytracing on PlayStation 5

But where did this confusion come from? It all started when GamePro claimed that the console included an HDMI 2.0 cable. This is because the cable was only labeled “High Speed ​​HDMI” instead of “Ultra High-Speed ​​HDMI”.

So the media assumed this meant that the cable that came with the console was an HDMI 2.0. That said, Sony has already clarified the situation and make it clear that it is an HDMI 2.1.

PlayStation 5 will arrive on November 12 in various countries around the world, including Mexico. You can learn more about this next-generation console by clicking here.
