Costly HDMI cables that promise to drastically improve picture quality have been around for years, but there’s often no discernible difference between the images they provide and those from cheaper products.

Marseille’s mCable Gaming Edition, however, seems to be an exception.

It’s a $119 HDMI that features a built-in advanced graphics post-processing engine.

One end of cable features an additional USB connector that powers the cable’s embedded digital signal processor, which allows contextual anti-aliasing and adaptive resolution scaling.

It also supports 1080p framerates up to 120 fps and has a sub-1ms lag.

YouTube channel Linus Tech Tips found it improved both game and video output (check out the video below) through its anti-aliasing and upscaling abilities, while PCPerspective also found a "noticeable difference in image quality" without introducing any lag.
