Austere’s 8K HDMI 2.1 cable, while future-ready for 8K, also accommodates the newest 4K TVs, as well as 8K gaming consoles. To further heighten the entertainment and gaming experience, Austere 8K HDMI cables also includes a featured called High-Fidelity eARC technology, said to deliver the highest quality streaming audio available, while Variable Refresh Rate provides smooth performance and is said to virtually eliminate image lag, stutter, and frame tearing.

The Austere 8K HDMI 2.1 cable is also designed with aesthetics in mind as well as performance, says the company.
