lol my Cat5e works fantastic with my fiber optic connection. Dude you are ignorant, just stop. You have zero comprehension of what we’re discussing. Your results? What results? You had a placebo effect, and you didn’t even do a proper test to find the average ping. On top of which Cat5e/6/7/8 HAVE ZERO effect on ping. That’s a fact. Your claims of a need for Cat8 could cause people to spend a lot more for something they don’t need and won’t help them. Guessing you overpaid for HDMI cables too? Got those gold plated ones or monster thinking they will improve the visuals.....they don’t lol. As I pointed out earlier, the PS4 has a max of 1Gbps. This means that anything over 1Gbps is pointless as the bottleneck is now the PS4 not the cable. Lemme guess. You ran 1-2 tests max of each and determined you had a better ping. That’s not how you do it. Plus the variance was tiny and falls within standard deviation. Means your results were meaningless. You didn’t gain any speed with Cat8. That’s a fact. PS my ping over Cat5e.....6-7ms. I’ve had as low as 1ms over Cat5e at work. It’s all about proximity to the network.
