There are newer specifications every year as monitors get higher and higher resolutions. See below, I recently had to upgrade to a newer HDMI 2.1 cable when I hooked up to an UHD 4K Oled TV, had glitches in video while the old TV had no trouble at 4K

And your answer is No, unless you have trouble.
