Hello!

I was wondering about the power needs of active fibre optical hdmi cables. Specifically, can I just plug the active hdmi cable into my old gtx 1060 graphic card and then into my tv (KD-55XH9505)? Will that work fine? Or can the gpu not power the cable?

The cable I was thinking about using:

I have never used active hdmi cables before so I don't know what to expect. Thanks for any help.

Hmm, I found this 30m 2.0 hdmi cable from Lanberg that cost 60 usd, instead of the 89 usd from noerdic:

Both cables look similar to me, probably from the same manufacturing plant in china.

I'm just hoping they are just gonna work with a regular gpu. From my PC to my TV with no power issues. If that's even a thing with them. Hopefully someone can clarify before I order one.
