ooh whats these fibre optic hdmi's, not seen them before.

Peeps, whats your thoughts?
I thought the same and had a look online, seems they have some type of converter in the cable but its a bit hit and miss whether the picture quality is actually any better.

With modern cables hitting 10Gbit/s sort of speeds, it seems a reasonable way of making longish high speed cables. The official Oculus link cable is fibre optic, which makes sense at 5m and wanting to stay bendy, but I baulked at the £90 price tag and got a simple 4m copper one. Now I've got a USB 3.1 PCIe card on order as I can't use the cheap cable on one of my PCs, so bang goes a lot of my savings.

Optical does mean that hdmi cables really are directional though, not like the gold plated audio cable ripoffs that say they are, they can have a transmit and a recieve end. That might take some getting used to.
Oh my! An RGB optical cable! Dear Lord!

There's the converter to transform electricity into light (and back again).

I've not seen much dispute about whether these work though. Maybe some of the cheap ones are of dubious value but a reasonable quality one will carry the same signal further than a copper cable without any breakup.

The distance at which they make sense does vary depending on local environment and how much bandwidth you're using though.
