Endgrain Boards - Does sixe of each *endgrain block* matter

Looking at a couple of chopping/cutting boards. (boardsmith, brooklyn butcher, etc). There is somewhat of a spread in price and which they hover from $150'ish -$300 for the same sized board. All built by a *small crafter*. All 3-4 of these boards I'm looking at, the blocks are staggered - supposedly for better strength.

The 2 most expensive, are using wider blocks - thus about 10 rows versus let's say the other 2 using smaller block heights, at 18-19 rows. Is there a functional difference in strength with the larger blocks (aside from less glued joints).

I'm going to presume 10 rows is more stronger than 18 rows of = depth of the same sized board. Is it worth the $150 more is the ?
