I currently have a 4K tv connected to a dolby atmos home theater system that is primarily used for 4K blu rays and PC gaming (60HZ) in HDR. I purchased the majority of my hdmi cables around 2016 which supported 2.0 at the time. I read online the newer cables support 2.1 which supports 8K and higher frame rates. Do I need to change my cables ? Doesn't sound like it but I read somewhere if you have an atmos setup you should.

Upgrading hdmi cables is pointless without also upgrading the attached components.

you said you don't view it at higher framerates though. (*60hz) also you said you don't have a 8k display.(*4k) I would wait to upgrade cables when you get a new display/bluray player/receiver or maybe just before then.
