The connectors of the HDMI cable are generally gold-plated and non-gold-plated. The gold-plated connectors will have better corrosion resistance, conductivity and high temperature resistance. So normally, cables with gold-plated connectors will be better. Many gold-plated connectors on the market use 24K gold-plated. The brightness is relatively high and it is easy to distinguish. But it’s not that it’s bad if it’s not gold-plated, because the PIN inside the HDMI connector will ultimately work during use. This is the main connection point.
