In a change to labelling from the HDMI Licensing Authority, HDMI 2.0 devices can now be labelled as HDMI 2.1. If you think that this is mad and leads to confusion and fraud, you're right. This first article explains the situation in full.


And this one's about how to avoid the pitfalls of buying HDMI 2.1 devices. The salient point is to look at the featureset of the device rather than that HDMI version number.

Bumping this as reference to HDMI 2.1 is starting to become common now, so people should be aware of the pitfalls.
