command to get your video card info


I have found the following command to get your video card info

shell> lspci

Is there any other command to get your video card info in a better way. Thanks

What do you mean by 'in a better way'? If you mean with better formatting, take a look at man lspci. Or you could just install the package Hardinfo. That will give you info about all your hardware (and more).

Take a look at
Code:
man lspci
That will show all the commandline flags.

There may be stuff in 'xdpyinfo' that's useful.
