PC gamers don’t often struggle with the length of their HDMI cables—from monitor to GPU ports you’re looking at a couple metres max. That is if you’re not using a DisplayPort cable anyways. But if you’ve ever tried to run a HDMI to another room or around the circumference of a living room to a TV, you’re in for a bad time. Don’t worry, though, HDMI 2.1 cables might be about to get a lot longer without all the fuss.

The HDMI 2.1 standard is being amended (via Overclock3D (opens in new tab)) to include a new feature called HDMI Cable Power. As you might imagine, it’s a new way of powering a HDMI cable via the existing HDMI connector and thus ensuring signal stability over longer distances.
