But if you choose a fixed ethernet cable and connect it to your PS4 from the RJ45 network port of the network module keystone, there will be no speed problems throughout the game to affect your gaming experience. The key is whether the ethernet cable you choose can meet your requirements and standards. What type of net wire is suitable? Cat8 ethernet cable or Cat7 cat6 cat5e?

Choose Shielded Ehernet Cable

For professional occasions and network data centers

Whether you need to participate in a video conference or play games for entertainment at home, you had better choose the shielding ethernet cable. Because the shielding ethernet cable can reduce the code error rate of data transmission, improve the stability of network signal transmission, and can also reduce the interference with other ethernet cables and improve the confidentiality of transmission data.

With the improvement of technology, different types of the ethernet cable have appeared. The quality of the ethernet cable directly affects the transmission speed and service life of the network. Therefore, the choice of the ethernet cable is very important. Among them, the most important consideration factor when choosing an ethernet cable is SPEED.

The current ethernet cable types include cat5e, cat6, cat6a, cat7, cat7a and cat8. Among them, cat8 ethernet cable is the latest standard ethernet cable. So what is the difference between cat8 ethernet cable and other types of ethernet cables?

Through the above figure, it is found that the speed and frequency of cat8 are better than other ethernet cables. But is cat8 ethernet cable suitable for connecting to ps4 to play games?

The answer is that it is not suitable. From the perspective of cat8’s transmission speed and speed, cat8 ethernet cable is more suitable for professional occasions and network data centers, such as in enterprise computer rooms, and use a crimper to connect patch panels and cat8 modules. cat8 ethernet cable is suitable for more professional and high-end scenes, which exceed the needs of the game.

Is cat6 better than cat5e?

Many people choose cat5e or cat6 to play games, but cat6 is better than cat5e. In terms of speed, cat5e cables are mainly used in 100M network, and cat6 cables are mainly used in Gigabit network, so cat6 cables are also called Gigabit network cables.

cat5e cables is marked with “CAT5e” on the outside, and the width of the transmission belt can be as high as 1000Mb/s, but it is generally only used in a network of 100Mb/s and only connects the desktop switch to the computer. Because cat5e unshielded ethernet cables must rely on the support of expensive special equipment.

The main difference between cat5e and cat6 is that the transmission shielding performance of cat6 is better than cat5e. cat6 net wire has an internal splitter to reduce interference or near-end crosstalk (NEXT). Compared with cat5e net wire, it also improves far-end crosstalk (ELFEXT). In addition, the return loss and insertion loss are lower. Therefore, the performance of cat6 ethernet cable is better.

But not all cat6 ethernet cables have a cross skeleton. Most cat6 ethernet cable have a cross skeleton inside, and a small number of cat6 ethernet cables do not have a cross skeleton. The relevant specifications do not stipulate that cat6 ethernet cable must use a cross skeleton, as long as they can reach the cat6 of standards.

Cat6 Cable for gaming

Compared with cat6, the shielding performance of cat5e is relatively poor, and cat5e is an older type of ethernet cable. If you use cat5e in the game, this may make your shooting slower than others. Although the applications of cat5e are more, as network devices and network environments have higher and higher requirements on transmission performance, cat6, cat7 and even cat8 will gradually occupy the mainstream market. Therefore, it is recommended that you still choose cat6 to enjoy the game.
