As we all know, a smooth gaming experience means a lot to gamers, and there are some factors you must consider when choosing an best Ethernet cable for PS4(PlayStation 4). Otherwise, when there is network lag or interruption, I bet it will drive you crazy!

Recently, due to the impact of new coronaviruses, there are plenty of times for some of you guys to play games at home, so let’s go down below and see what’s your best choice for maintaining your network speed.

Cat8 Ethernet cable or WIFI?

Many people now choose to use WI-FI. However, it may have some problems. The distance between rooms, the blocking between walls, doors and furniture all affect the quality of network connection in some way.

But if you choose a fixed ethernet cable and connect it to your PS4 or other devices from the RJ45 network port of the network module keystone,  the probability of internet outage would be decreased. The key is no matter what kind of Ethernet cables you choose, they can meet your different requirements and standards all. Then you might ask, what type of net wire is the one for me? Cat8 ethernet cable or Cat7 cat6 cat5e?

Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data that can be transferred through an internet or LAN connection depending on the cables category and maximum frequency variation. Ethernet connection offers up to 10Gbps data transfer speed hence making it faster than WI-FI connection, therefore get cables with 550MHz and 10Gbps data rate if you own high-speed internet.

Shielded Ehernet Cable for ps4

Whether you need to attend a video conference or play games for entertainment at home, it is recommended that you choose a shielded Ethernet cable. This is because shielded cables can reduce the bit error rate of data transmission, reduce interference with other Ethernet cables, improve the stability of network signal transmission, and increase the confidentiality of transmitted data.

With the improvement of technology, different types of Ethernet cable have appeared one after another. The quality of the Ethernet cable affects the transmission speed and service life of the network directly. Therefore, which kind of Ethernet cable you choose could be very important, but we all know that speed can be the most crucial consideration.


When gaming, little latency is needed, latency is the time required by data to travel from point to point. Cables without shielding and have small separations have a lot of interference, therefore, increasing the latency period. Gamers should opt for cables with reduced cross-talk and interference and 100% oxygen-free copper, separated shielded wires and 50-micro gold plated contacts.

Advantages of Cat8 Ethernet cable for ps4

The current Ethernet cable types include cat5e, cat6, cat6a, cat7, cat7a and cat8, and Cat8 Ethernet cable is the latest standard Ethernet cable. So what is the difference between Cat8 Ethernet cable and other Ethernet cables?

Through the above figure, it is found that the speed and frequency of cat8 are much better than other Ethernet cables. But can we say that the best Ethernet cable for ps4 is cat8 cable?

The answer is that Cat8 cable is not that fitting for PS4. Just considering the speed, Cat8 cables are indeed better than others for some professional occasions like enterprise computer rooms and network data centers, or when you try to use a crimper to connect patch panels and cat8 modules. So, Cat8 ethernet cable is more suitable for more professional and high-end scenes, which is beyond the requirements of game.

Cat6 VS Cat5e

In most cases, people will choose cat5e or cat6 for playing 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” 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.

Unshielded net wire

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 end crosstalk (next). Compared with cat5e net wire, which also improves far-end cross talk (ELFEXT), in addition, the return loss and insertion loss are lower.

As a result, cat6 Ethernet cables perform better. However, not all cat6 cables have crossbones, because there is no relevant specification that says cat6 cables must have crossbones, as long as they meet the cat6 standard.

Cat6:Best ethernet cable for ps4?

Compared with cat6, cat5e has poor shielding performance, and cat5e is an older Ethernet cable. Using cat5e for gaming will make you shoot slower than other cables, although it has a wider range of applications, because the transmission performance of network equipment is increasingly demanding, cat6, cat7, cat8 will gradually occupy the mainstream market.

Choosing a good Ethernet cable will ensure a good Ethernet connection. Note that low grade materials such as copper clad in aluminum (CLA) can affect your internet connection, so be sure to choose materials such as bare copper with aluminum foil shielding. Therefore, it is recommended that you choose cat6 cable to enjoy ps4 games.

Q &A


You can certainly go with cat8, because cat8 works with ps4, and ps4 supports cat8!
The cat8 Ethernet cable has very fast network speeds, but it is more expensive compared to cat6. Generally speaking, cat6 Ethernet cable is enough for your gaming needs. But if you have enough money, you can’t do better with cat8!


Cat6 Ethernet cable has nothing to do with the router they are just cabling and are just 8 wires that is all the router cares about.


They both support faster data transfers and are typically more durable, they offer better options for insulation against crosstalk and internal noise. The cat5e or cat6 debate is one that is easily won by cat6 if you entirely on features.


Although cat5e and cat6 are both good choices for gaming over Ethernet connections, cat6 cables are often the preferred type. This is not necessarily because of speed, however, since 1000MBPS is fine for most gamers. Cat6 cables are better at handling interference than cat5e cables.

Is PS4 better with Ethernet cable?

For ps4, Ethernet cables are indeed superior to wifi.
Because the distance between rooms, the walls, doors and furniture blocking them all affect the quality of the network connection in some way. And with Ethernet cables the probability of network interruptions is reduced.
