1.4a only added some 3d formats (frame packing), but only with resolutions
which you can do with "old" frequencies (1080p24 x2 and similar). hdmi 1.3 (!)
was actually the new version which introduced the higher frequencies, though I
think devices claiming to only be hdmi 1.3 compliant actually supporting the
higher frequencies were very, very rare (if they even exist). It is possible
supporting these was mandatory with 1.4b (cause it introduced 1080p60 x2) but I
wouldn't bet on it neither.
Similarly, there's now "HDMI 2.0" devices out there which only support 4k with
30Hz and not 60Hz (or more specifically, 340Mhz frequency instead of 600Mhz).
All the same old story.
