What graphics card do I have? This is how the GPU is checked

If you want to play the best PC games on your computer, knowing what graphics card you have is crucial information. After all, a GPU released ten years ago won’t be able to run modern graphics-demanding titles. Knowing which GPU you have makes it easier to see if your rig meets the minimum requirements for a game. But how can you tell which graphics card you have?

This might seem like a silly question if you’re tech savvy, but it can be a real conundrum. Heck, there was a time when I had to look up this question myself! There are always new people getting into PC gaming for the first time, so a question like this will always be relevant.

Read on for our step-by-step guide to finding out which graphics card you have.

How to check which GPU you have

Finding out what graphics card you have is not that difficult. There are three common ways to find your PC’s graphics card in Windows, which we will describe below. Please note that although we are using Windows 11 for this tutorial, the same methods apply to Windows 10.

How to check which GPU you have in Device Manager

1. Open the Start menu. If you’re on Windows 11, the Start menu is in the center of the taskbar. In Windows 10, it’s on the far left. Note that all subsequent methods start by opening the Start menu; the quickest way to do this is usually simply by pressing the Windows key on your keyboard.
