Take a look at thee following link: http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx#49
Since I was long winded, I'll address this important point.

A "high speed" HDMI cable is one that complies to HDMI 1.3b standards. This covers 1080P and a little bit beyond. Monster is not unique offering "high speed" cables.

High-Speed cables are also able to accommodate higher resolution displays, such as WQXGA cinema monitors (resolution of 2560 x 1600).
