Value

Once again, this graph is fairly misleading. Neither ITX board competes directly with the Pro4. The mATX board enjoys a large price benefit since you're not asked to pay the ITX premium tax. It could have performed notably slower than the other boards and still won the value award. Again, these graphs will correct themselves once more mATX boards are added to the charts.
