Agreed, and I have some data to support this. It’s bogus, but you can’t have everything. After noticing that my Ethernet switch and its wall wart were getting hot I ordered a replacement plus a few cables. They were brand name cables bought from Amazon. Not only is the switch faster but the cable to my main computer is red - bound to make a difference.
On Wednesday, the first day the new equipment was in use, a cricket match started. For those who have not come across it, this is both a sport and a rain dance. Although I was working I kept a tab open with a cricket feed - and everything was happening far faster than anybody could believe. The match ended in less than three days - many fail to finish in the five days allowed.
The red cable is probably the key component.
