I have seen many people in this thread and other forums try longer cables and fail. It's right that the quality of the cable doesn't really matter at short distances but it's different at longer distances when pushing the maximum bandwidth of the cable, it's still copper which has a resistance unlike fiber. There are 10+ meter cables which are "4K ready" but if you read properly, they say it's for 30Hz, and for 1440P it's 60Hz. You could still try to push for 144Hz but visual errors are likely to occur if it works at all.

At any rate, I've found a 30AWG and 32AWG cable, both around 1M. If my cable ends up not being good then I'll get one of those.
Smaller AWG means thicker, a 1M cable with 32 AWG has a worse resistance than a 2M cable with 28 AWG. Though 30 AWG at 1M is a little better. I hope the cable supplied with the Swift is 28 AWG.
