About this deal

With a millisecond of lag often meaning life or death in the gaming world, you may be wondering what are the best Ethernet cables for gaming? It is, however, backward compatible with RJ-45 and could be used interchangeably for the most part, but due to the limited adoption of Cat7 Ethernet cables, the GG45 Connector is hard to come by . Cat8 cables are restricted to 30 metres in length, and this can deliver speeds between 25GBps and 40GBps. Although this maybe true, its important to highlight that these results are not ratified, and the performance will highly depend on your hardware set-up.

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . If the wire OD is too thin, the wire will slide inside the load bar, making it impossible to crimp properly, and if the wire OD is too thick, the wire will not be inserted into the load bar. These shielded RJ45’s work with solid and stranded cable with 8 pins (gold plated) and 8 conductors. I know I am dumb for getting the cable before understanding it fully, but I always thought I had quite a good grasp of logic and this makes my brain hurt.The cables aren’t rated for that kind of speed, but it shows what a capable solution it was when first launched, making it all the more impactful that Cat 7 was not adopted more widely. Cat7 cables are commonly terminated onto GG45 connectors which in addition to the standard 8 termination connectors, they have 4 additional points of contact. SOLUTION: I have found RJ45 connectors that are compatible with Cat7 and can also be used with the standard cat 5/6 crimpers.

I have wasted hours trying to use these connectors and I can safely say that these are NOT for Cat7 FTP cable. Personally, I recommend the GG45 connector type for Cat 7, but would advise you stick to Cat 6a connectors for now until GG45 is more widely supported on network switches and NICs or TERA connectors are significantly improved. If you are running a data center or really interested in future-proofing your network and want more than Cat6A has to offer, then you’d be better off choosing a Cat8 cable .The terms "igus", "Apiro", "chainflex", "CFRIP", "conprotect", "CTD", "drylin", "dry-tech", "dryspin", "easy chain", "e-chain", "e-chain systems", "e-ketten", "e-kettensysteme", "e-skin", "e-spool", "flizz", "ibow", "igear", "iglidur", "igubal", "igutex", "kineKIT", "manus", "motion plastics", "pikchain", "readychain", "readycable", "ReBeL", "speedigus", "triflex", "robolink", "xirodur", and "xiros" are legally protected trademarks of the igus® GmbH/ Cologne in the Federal Republic of Germany and where applicable in some foreign countries.

As noted above, the jump in potential bandwidth performance between Cat5 and Cat7 Ethernet cable is stated as being in the region of around 6x improvement. There are probably some instances where someone might want a little heavier shielding, but cable shielding has ALWAYS been over-played.It’s not going to make a comeback, and against the likes of Cat6A and Cat8 cables, it doesn’t stand a chance considering their widespread and ever-increasing adoption.

Especially as we move ever closer to a true ‘Internet of Things’ era, where almost any device you can imagine is able to record and transmit potentially valuable user data in real-time, it’s becoming more and more important to stay ahead of an ever-steepening tech curve. While it’s certainly true that very few typical home hardware setups will support anything like the sorts of data transfer speeds and bandwidths that Cat7(a) Ethernet cabling can, using the highest revision wire you can will still offer potential performance boosts in many basic router-to-device networking scenarios. With its one-step termination process, this connector offers outstanding shielding performance and reduces external interferences. UPDATE: Ok, I have used the standard RJ45 terminators and these have allowed me to use the cable although, as predicted, I have not seen a clearly higher performance in cat 7 over cat 6/6a. These do not provide speeds higher than would be expected of Cat 6a, and are a bit more expensive, but at least I can use the cable without paying 30€ a time for TERA connectors or having to bodge the whole thing by stripping the internal wires.The newest revision may well become a viable option for more general use in due course, but currently, it’s not recommended for most scenarios in which a standard Cat7 version would be expected to perform well. This can include anything from temperature extremes and UV/moisture exposure, to direct contact with a wide range of solvents, oils and chemicals, making Cat7 wire an equally ideal choice for robust outdoor applications such as railway cables. Unscreened (unshielded) Cat 6 can do 10GBASE-T at up to 55 meter distances, and shielded Cat 6 can do 10GBASE-T at up to 100m distances. First it is stated 'Cat7 is pointless for Ethernet' - then it is stated 'Cat7 has been designed for Gigabit Ethernet over 100m'.
