The Agena variant of the Phenom processor had a defect (errata) which made all of these chips somewhat slower than AMD's high range dual core chips and substantially slower than its competition's quad core chips. This hurt AMD's reputation and caused it to lose prestige and footing in the market.
The Deneb variant has no errata issues and is fairly competitive with other quad core processors by competing manufacturers.
True phenoms exude qualities such as ambition, caring, respect, honor, integrity, and all around character. They are the people you look at and although others may not see it, you know that they are going to be big one day.
A person who says they are a "Phenom" or have "Phenom" abilities are not. This includes saying your middle name is Phenom on Myspace or Facebook. You cannot be a self-proclaimed Phenom, that would be a paradox.
