Top 3 fastest Ethernet LAN cable for PC gaming

If you are still using a CAT5 or CAT5E cable while gaming, this article is especially for you. As you can guess from the title, we are here to discuss really fast Ethernet LAN cables for PC gaming, so it is safe to assume we will discuss CAT6 or CAT7 cables right? Wrong. We are going to look at the best of the best CAT8 cable there is. Many would argue that procuring a cable that transmit rate between 25Gbps tp 40Gbps and a bandwidth transmission of 2000MHz is overkill. But this is the PC gaming world. Speed limits do not stop the rich from buying supercars, so why should such benign specifics stop you from purchasing the fastest Ethernet cable the world has to offer.


Do note, there are many CAT8 cables on the market, but on this list, we only showcase brands which are verifiable. Which means we avoid any chances or cheap quality Ethernet cables. Let's begin.

We suspect this product might be an OEM from China. But the SIngapore based conmpany should ensure that this Ethernet CAT8 cable really is CAT8, as opposed to purchasing some nameless brand online that claims to be CAT8 but is probably a CAT6 or worse. This number three spot we really wanted to give to a company named Leviton, a US based manufacturer that specializes in such cables. But we cannot seem to find any way to purchase their fantastic cables online. Herego, the spot went to the next best contender on our list, Valore.
