Get GPU information programatically? BASH


Recommended Posts

What are some good statements for getting GPU information. Pretty much I just need the make of the GPU so I can install drivers.

Here's some of the ideas I came up with. As you can see they are not really catch all statements. I need just a bit of help. Any ideas would be great.


IsINTEL=$(lspci | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' | grep '00:0' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)

if [ "$IsINTEL" == "$ISINTEL" ]; then

  echo -e "Intel"

IsNVIDIA=$(lspci | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' | grep '00:0' | cut -d ' ' -f 4)

if [ "$IsNVIDIA" == "$ISNVIDIA" ]; then

  echo -e "NVIDIA"

IsAMD=$(lspci | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' | grep '00:0' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)

if [ "$IsAMD" == "$ISAMD" ]; then

  echo -e "AMD"

On a personal note, my BASH skills are getting a lot better.
