It’s been about three years since our review of the Marseille cable, and we are fortunate to review their new mCable Gaming edition. When I saw it at CES 2016, I had a chance to try it out with two screens side-by-side, so I could see the difference.
This time, I was not at one of the world’s biggest tech shows (we will be covering CES 2019 in a few weeks, by the way), but I used the mCable gaming edition on PS4 and the Switch. I tried watching videos and games on both of them, and I will have to say that I see a difference.
Now, this is always the difficult part of trying to describe how a video image looks different. My wife was kind enough to take a before and after picture, but there wasn’t really anything fit on the images to show the difference.
I can assure you, that it is there. I decided to just simply post the reason why, because honestly, I don’t really understand it myself.
Operates advanced graphics processing with incredibly low lag time. Processes all the enhanced content features in less than 1 millisecond per frame, with speed up to 120 FPS.
Upconverts to HD or 4K game content. Up-scales native rendered resolution up to Super HD @ 120 FPS or 4K 4:2:0 @ 60 FPS.
Improves image depth, contrast & color rendering. Analyzes every single pixel and adjusts it for the optimal image.
Performs Contextual Anti-Aliasing (CxAA). Eliminates jagged edges and shimmering texture without creating blurring artifacts.
You can find that information on the Marseille website, but I will have to say that the images there of how it improves blocky images seem a little…exaggerated. Still, there was a clarity to some of the backgrounds, and it felt like Mario was a little clearer and less shiny (in the white way).
Yeah, it really is difficult to describe the improvement, but there is an improvement. You can get it on the Marseille site in 3 feet ($119), 6 feet ($129), or 9 feet ($139) lengths for varying prices.
