Definitely. So, only way to know which is better is to test both /with
your own equipment/ (and your own eyes--as much of the "better" is
subjective rather than objective).

because of the committee (i.e. "design by committee") that designed
DVI/HDMI cables to use twisted-pair wires rather than coaxial wires even
after the decision to use Serial Digital Interface (SDI) signaling
(which was designed for coaxial cables) was made.
