Analyst Comment

HDMI 2.1 supports the same shape connectors as earlier versions, but the cable has been upgraded. One of the new features in 2.1 will be adaptive frame rates (like FreeSync or G-Sync) and Microsoft is expected to support this with the XBox One X. One of the other features is support for dynamic metadata for HDR. (BR)
