There may be a point where you want to know what graphics card is sitting in your computer. However, you may be too lazy/busy to open it up and find out. Or, even if the spirit and flesh are willing, you have difficulty tracking down a screwdriver that would help you end the mystery – if you even know where the magical device is hidden inside your PC.
Luckily for you, there’s an easy way to find out what kind of graphics card your computer has without ever getting up from your desk. Here, we’ll show you how.
How to see what kind of graphics card you have without getting up
Once CPU-Z is open, click on the Graphics tab at the top.
CPU-Z’s Graphics tab will give you the information you’re looking for (below). It will tell you which company made your graphics card (EVGA, here) who made the GPU (in this case, Nvidia did) what the model number is, how much memory your card has, as well as how fast the core and memory clocks run.
Anytime you want to find out what kind of graphics card you have, all you need to do is repeat these steps. Also, you never have to worry about CPU-Z slowing your computer down. As you can see below, CPU-Z consumers minimal system resources, and much fewer than what other Windows programs will eat up.
