I would like to say that, this board is stable. But it is not. I would like to say this motherboard performs better, unfortunately not. If you enable audio option with SoundBlaster support even these bad scores drop dramatically. I couldn't really analyze if it is a bandwidth issue, because I didn't want to loose more time on it. I have seen some tests on its mobile version, and scores were like our scores with sound option enabled.

Is it full of features? Nope. It has to be a good small form factor board with a dirt cheap price. But when I search it on pricewatch etc. the minimum price was $80 when I was writing these lines. Even with an AGP card, the scores was the worst of all AMD motherboards. I don't think ATI IGP320 is a good option for desktop or small factor PC. There are lots of really good options with really good prices on the market now. When I was searching for information, I couldn't find any tests from respectable sites for this board. Now I know why.
