Testing Configuration and Benchmarks Used

We matched this Zotac 9300-ITX WiFi motherboard against an ECS A785GM-M AM3 board. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any mini ITX boards to compare the 9300-ITX to, so the next best thing was this ECS board that has a 785G chipset and is a micro ATX solution. We know that the results will be skewed a bit in favor of the A785GM-M, but it should provide a good overview of the current solutions available to consumers. We also should inform our readers that we were not able to use a 64-bit version of Windows 7 during testing because Zotac did not have any 64-bit drivers available for this motherboard yet. We will amend this article when we receive the new 64-bit drivers.
