Probably a dumb question, but is is there anything faster than CAT 8 that uses the RJ 45 connector? Thanks!

1. No, it is a brand new protocol.

2. You do realize that the cable is but one part of the whole data transmission stream, right?
Thanks for your answer, and yes I do know the cable is just a part of the system I was just curious.

I'd also worry a little about where you get the cables. Amazon is the worst.

But regardless of source, as an example of being careful: Bluejeans cable once pointed out that when tested on a Fluke, the majority of cat6a cables they came across were cat5e's in disguise.
