The HDMI Forum is nevertheless charging ahead and has released the HDMI 2.1 specification.

The HDMI 2.1 specification is now available, which means TV/monitor makers can start making good use of it. HDMI 2.1 supports an insane 10K resolution which throws the pixels up to a huge 10240 x 4320, up from the 7680 x 4320 that 8K is capable of. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, with bandwidth capability upped to 48Gbps.

The HDMI forum has released the HDMI 2.1 spec, and promised it can deliver 48Gbps if you buy new cables that support the jump from HDMI 2.0s 18Gbps. The eARC feature for simplifying connectivity and superior audio formats and quality can be enjoyed with current HDMI and High Speed HDMI cables that support Ethernet. Resolutions up to 10K at 50Hz are also supported for commercial AV, and industrial and specialty usages. Variable Refresh Rate can reduce or even eliminate lag, screen tearing, and stuttering, and Quick Frame Transport helps with "smoother no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality". The HDMI Forum has also minimised the blank screens when switching sources with its Quick Media Switching (QMS) for movies and video.

The HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS) will be published in stages throughout the first three quarters of 2018. However, it will be nice to have HDMI 2.1 available as an option in the not too distant future as well. Auto Low Latency Mode automatically sets the ideal latency setting for lag-free and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity. It ensures full compatibility between audio devices and upcoming HDMI 2.1 products. Don't worry if your TV does not support 10K (no TVs right now do) the new 2.1 standard of HDMI cables will be backwards compatible. More resolution, higher frame rates, and more color depth.
