THE NEED FOR SPEED.
When you think about it, in a normal home theater set up, your HDMI cable is handling 1080p or 4K picture, up to 8 channels of full bandwidth audio, and in some cases, an Ethernet connection. That's a ton of data. And without enough bandwidth your HDMI cable could easily be the weak link in the chain. That's why Monster introduced speed rated cables. Every package is clearly marked with the Gbps rating (Gigabytes Per Second). And remember, more speed means more entertainment.
