Asus is another one that I'm not sure of the correct pronunciation. Is it Aaa-suse or Ah-suse, or Aaa-sys? Lol...

Those 2 I have never known Thanks for that, I've only ever known Asus is ahhhhhh-soooos.

Anyway regarding Phenom I have never really cared, I think both are okay and I don't think either way is correct or wrong. May want to find an AMD guy to enlighten us on this matter.

There was an Asus commercial in which they clarified how to pronounce it.

It's Uhhh-soos.

Also, I always said fen-um.

Well Phenom is a real word, so I'd think that's how it is meant to be pronounced.

Like how Sandy Bridge isn't pronounced "Sandye Bridgee"

Phenom (fēˌnäm)

The ē is a long e, or "ee" sound like in "tree"

Phenomenal (fəˈnämənəl)

The ə is a Schwa and sounds like "uh"

Phenom is pronounced differently than Phenomenal. Although to be fair it is a product name and AMD could tell is that it is really pronounced like "Asphalt"
