PS5 HDMI 2.1 Bandwidth Reportedly Has A 32GB/s Limit

According to Vincent Tech of HDTVTest, the HMDI 2.1 cable included in the PS5 has a bandwidth limit of 32GB/s as opposed to the Xbox Series X, which features up to 40GB/s.

Tech conducted tests with the LG 48” CX TV, revealing the PS5 HDMI 2.1 currently has a limit of 32GB/s. When playing a game at 120Hz, this means the console will switch to 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, whereas Microsoft’s next-generation console is able to maintain the 4:4:4 format.

Uhmm... in short, in means the color accuracy will be diminished when going 4K/120 due to lack of bandwidth. It's most noticeable in videogames and when using the display as a PC monitor.
