To be "Phenomenal" at something, or to be a person of certain great qualities that just can't be described. Not necessarily a prodigy, but certainly special. They posses a certain "it factor" about themselves, something that goes beyond the exterior but comes from their core and radiates out.

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.

Guy 2: "Yeah (begins deleting "Phenom" as his middle name on Facebook)

A four CPU processor released by AMD Inc. in the year 2007, in the Agena core variant, and in the year 2009, with the Deneb core variant.

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.
The benchmarks published on most computer enthusiast websites confirm that the Phenom 9500 is actually slower in most applications than the Athlon X2 6000.
