It depends what you are trying to discover about the processor.
I believe there are at least three different silicon revisions of
7455 processors defined in the cpu features table.  One purpose
of cpu features is to provide a standard set of information so
you don't have to test PVR all of the time, but rather just check
if the cpu has the feature of interest.

have fun :-)
