Though how many cheap cables were sold that were really suitable for
nothing other than tying in a knot?

But I'd tend to challenge their assertion.  There's a huge increase in
speed between the two, and that means a very large bandwidth change.
It's a much higher signal frequency in use, and any crappy cable
termination, or other cable characteristics, will have a worse effect on
it.
