You say that as though Turions and the Core series were bad. I'm currently running a Phenom 2 x6 3.3GHz.. and guess what? For the majority of tasks, it is no better than my previous Core 2 Quad 2.5GHz. And the Turion processor is no slouch; I know this from experience.

Can these chips power a supercomputer? No. Do 99% of people need them to? Not at all.
