Looks like benching superpi seems shameful, but how will real world apps do?
Once again, Super-Pi is not an indicator of the performance on these cpus. Intel has been known to do better in this benchmark.
The Phenom II's peform a lot better than you would think in real-world apps and games. It will still be slower than intel's offerings in decoding and such, but not by much.
The Phenom II falls between the C2Q's performance, and the i7's performance.

Alright! Start working on stabilizing 3.8 if you can. If not, try stabilizing 3.6.
