sk6812 led strip is better than ws2812b,why?what is their difference?

hello,every friend,as we know ws2812b upgrade to sk6812,so,could you share some information about their difference? Appreciated your help. I know thire is shape in the 5050 led is different,any others function different?

SK6812 is much stable than WS2812b,ws2812b is easy to break. /media/uploads/Crystal1986/6812_rgb.jpg

Well 30 seconds on google found this https://cpldcpu.com/2016/03/09/the-sk6812-another-intelligent-rgb-led/ and this https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/product-files/1138/SK6812+LED+datasheet+.pdf

There are some small differences but basically they are just a copy of the WS2812 made by a different company.

I don't know arduino well, this site has nothing to do with arduino. However there are already lots of libraries and tutorials for using these LEDs with an arduino, google should give you lots of links. WS2812 LEDs are also sometimes called NeoPixels in the arduino world, you may have more luck using that in the search term than ws2812 or sk6812
