The HDMI forum has published the specs for version 2.1 and give gamers and multimedia perfectionists everything they could ever want for years to come. The new spec includes support for resolutions up to 10K (10240x4320) at refresh rates up to 120 Hz. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, with bandwidth capability upped to 48Gbps.
HDMI 2.1 is more a future-facing update than one that will directly affect current devices, seeing as we're still just starting to reach the point where 4K video is becoming commonplace, to say nothing of 8K resolution or technologies like dynamic HDR video that HDMI 2.1 in theory will be able to support. It also reduces interference with nearby wireless devices because it features exceptionally low EMI (electro-magnetic interference).
Higher video resolutions support a range of high resolutions and faster refresh rates including 8K60Hz and 4K120Hz for immersive viewing and fast-action detail.
HDMI 2.1 is compatible with 4K at 120Hz, 8K at 60Hz, and 10K resolutions for commercial A/V applications.

Dynamic HDR support ensures every moment of a video is displayed at its ideal values for depth, detail, brightness, contrast, and wider colour gamuts-on a scene-by-scene or a frame-by-frame basis.
All the above listed niceties are enabled by the HDMI v2.1's increase in bandwidth - supporting up to 48Gbps. Don't worry if your TV does not support 10K (no TVs right now do) the new 2.1 standard of HDMI cables will be backwards compatible.
eARC simplifies connectivity, provides greater ease of use, and supports the most advanced audio formats and highest audio quality. Variable Refresh Rate can reduce or even eliminate lag, screen tearing, and stuttering, and Quick Frame Transport helps with "smoother no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality". Quick media switching (QMS) should get rid of that brief black screen when switching content. It also features the new Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM).
