Things You Should Consider When Getting a Watch Band For Your Apple Watch

August 27, 2019

There is no way to overlook the fact that when you are looking at Apple watches, they are pretty famous, to begin with. Over time, they have developed this amazing following and a lot of people are buying them. Not only that, you can even customize these watches, which only makes them a lot better than some of the other options available in the market.

Keeping that in mind, there are a few things that you should consider when getting a watch band for your Apple watch. There are some amazing apple watch bands but it is better to just consider things beforehand because it certainly matters a lot. You do not want to be left with something that you do not even like.

Your Budget

While it is true that most watch bands fall under the category of being affordable; the same does not apply to everything that is available. There are some bands that are made out of higher quality material and as you would expect, they are more expensive than the ones that are made out of standard quality material. Therefore, it would be best if you just consider your budget so there are no discrepancies.

The Style And Material

Another important thing that you should be considering is the style and material. Are you looking for silicon strap, a bracelet, or a Milanese mesh? This is something that you should always look into because this is what will be deciding just what you end up with. You do not want to make a hasty decision at all when it comes to such options. It is not the right thing to do and will result in you just throwing your money away.

The Kaby Lake CPU is Finally Here – But Is It Worth The Wait?

August 7, 2019

If you’re a geek about computers, then you know when a new player is about to enter the scene far before it actually does. Intel has always been the CPU manufacturer that we’d all trust blindly and that’s precisely what we’ve done with the new Core i7 Kaby Lake processor as well but more on that in just a bit. PC enthusiasts that choose AMD over Intel processors are a rare breed these days but after hearing about Kaby Lake, we’re sure they’re more smug about their choice now than ever.

It’s not that the Core i7 Kaby Lake is a bad processor chip at all. It’s every bit as good as the S-series Core i7 7700k but that’s not the problem. The problem is that the performance gains over the outgoing line-up on processors are almost negligible. That’s right if there is any difference in performance than the new Kaby Lake CPU is only one-tenth of a second faster than the 7700k. Given the fact that the older CPU can be overclocked for even higher performance than the Kaby Lake, we’re actually pretty disappointed in the new processor.

After all that hype and anticipation for the new processor, we really thought that we’d see something with a substantially better performance. At this point, you might be hopeful that the Kaby Lake has other improvements, aside from speed but so were we. Benchmark tests have shown that the new Kaby Lake CPU isn’t any better at conserving energy or having better thermal dynamics than the outgoing model either. You can check out the specifics of this on itechpost.com.

To put things into perspective, if you have a Core i5-7600k processor powering your PC and you were considering upgrading to the new Kaby Lake, then you’d rather turbo boost it for free than upgrade.
