I have a Xiaomi Mi 8 which uses a USB C connector for charging. As long as my phone supports Fast Charging, do I need any sort of special USB C cable to take advantage of the fastest charging speed that my device supports?

I read in Wikipedia that "All USB-C cables must be able to carry a minimum of 3 A current" however I see some USB C cables advertised as supporting up to only 2A.

NOTE: my charger supports 3A 5V, 2A 18V, and 1.5A 12V
