  • maybe...just because a cable is capable of up to 48Gbps, doesn't mean it is HDMI 2.1 specification compliant/certified; moreover, until HDMI.org releases final HDMI 2.1 CTS, any cable claiming to be certified HDMI 2.1 specifications isn't HDMI 2.1. From HDMI.org

    Q: What is the testing policy for HDMI 2.1 products?
    A: All products must comply with Version 2.1 of the HDMI Specification and the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS); and until the CTS is available and a product has passed compliance testing a product cannot claim to be 2.1 compliant or market that it supports 2.1 features.

    Q: When will the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification be available?
    A: The HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS) is being published in stages and the first release was in August 2018 including support for Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC). Additional features will be added in the coming months.

    Belkin/Apple may use words like up to 48Gbps capable of HDMI 2.1 specifications, which is not the same it being HDMI 2.1 standard or certified.
