Information about the make and model of the graphics card can help with troubleshooting system issuesfinding appropriate graphics drivers, or validating warranty submissions. 

This article provides instructions on how to identify the manufacturer and model of an AMD graphics card.  The contents are organized into the following sections:

Physical Inspection

The quickest and easiest method to identify an AMD graphics card is by inspecting the original retail box in which the product came in or the sticker label attached to the graphics card, as shown in the examples below:

  1. Original retail box – The image below indicates that the manufacturer and model of the graphics card is a PowerColor Radeon™ R7 240.
  2. Sticker label – The image below indicates that the manufacturer and model of the graphics card is a Sapphire Radeon RX 580.

Subsystem Vendor ID and Device ID

The Subsystem Vendor ID and Device ID are two sets of device identification strings, each set consisting of four hexadecimal digits.

Using the Subsystem Vendor ID and Device ID, the manufacturer and model of a graphics card can be determined.  This method is ideal for a system that does not have proprietary graphics driver installed and physical inspection is not feasible.

To find out the graphics card Subsystem Vendor ID and Device ID use Windows® Device Manager.

  1. Open Device Manager and expand Display adapters and Microsoft Basic Display Adapter should be visible.
  2. Right-click Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and click on Properties.
  3. Go to Details tab, select Hardware Ids under Property.

In the example shown above the Hardware ID string is: PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_67FF&SUBSYS_0B041002&REV_CF

The bolded segment in the Hardware ID string indicates that the graphics card Device ID is 67FF, and the Subsystem Vendor ID is 1002. 

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_67FF&SUBSYS_0B041002&REV_CF

Note: For identifying the graphics card manufacturer and model, only the DEV and SUBSYS segment values will be used.  Only the last four alphanumeric characters in the SUBSYS string segment are used to determine the Subsystem Vendor ID.

Once the graphics card Subsystem Vendor ID has been found, match it to the list below of manufacturers to identify the manufacturer or origin of the graphics card.

To identify the model of the graphics card using its Device ID, refer to a 3rd party website: Device Hunt1

On the Device Hunt website, enter the graphics card Device ID in the Device ID field (as shown below) and click the Search icon.

 

The results should provide the model of the graphics card.  For example: Using the Device ID 9802, the model of the graphics card is identified as AMD Radeon™ HD 6310.

AMD Graphics Software and Driver for Windows® Based System

For Windows® based systems with AMD proprietary graphics software and driver installed and functioning correctly, the manufacturer and model of the AMD graphics card can be identified by using the graphics software user interface.

Note: Depending on the generation of the AMD graphics card and the version of the graphics software package installed in the system, the user interface could be either:

  1. Radeon™ Settings
  2. AMD Catalyst™ Control Center

 

Radeon™ Settings

If your system uses Radeon™ Settings follow the steps below to identify the manufacturer and model of the installed AMD graphics card:

  1. Open Radeon Settings by right-clicking an empty space on the Desktop.  From the menu select AMD Radeon Settings.
  2. In Radeon Settings, select the System menu located on the top right corner.
  3. In the System menu, select the Hardware tab.
  4. Within the Hardware section, the graphics card model is labeled under Graphics Chipset.  The Subsystem Vendor ID and the Device ID strings are also provided (red boxes added for emphasis).

    Note: The Graphic Card Manufacturer label (see upper left above) should display Powered by AMD, this specifies that the installed graphics card was designed using AMD GPU and graphics technology
     
  5. To determine the actual manufacturer of the graphics card, make note of the Subsystem Vendor ID and match it to the manufacturer using the lookup table below. 
     
    Subsystem Vendor IDManufacturer
    1002AMD
    1043ASUSTeK
    196DClub 3D
    1092Diamond Multimedia

    107BGateway
    103CHP
    17AALenovo
    104DSony
    1179Toshiba


In the example above, the Subsystem Vendor ID 1DA2 show the manufacturer of the AMD graphics card as Sapphire.

  

AMD Catalyst™ Control Center

If your system uses AMD Catalyst™ Control Center follow the steps below to identify the manufacturer and model of the installed AMD graphics card:

  1. Open AMD Catalyst™ Control Center by right-clicking empty space on the Desktop.  From the menu select AMD Catalyst Control Center.
     
  2. If AMD Catalyst Control Center is in Standard View mode, then scroll down to Information, select Product Summary, then selectHardware.  The Graphics Chipset should indicate the model of the installed graphics card. 

    Note: The Graphic Card Manufacturer label (see top line above)should display Powered by AMD, this specifies that the installed graphics card was designed using AMD GPU and graphics technology

    If AMD Catalyst Control Center is in Advanced View mode, click on the Information tab located on the left side menu, then select Hardware.  The Graphics Chipset should indicate the model of the graphics card. 


    Note: The Graphic Card Manufacturer label (see top line above) should display Powered by AMD, this specifies that the installed graphics card was designed using AMD GPU and graphics technology.
     
  3. Within the Hardware section, the graphics card model is labeled under Graphics Chipset.  The Subsystem Vendor ID and the Device ID strings are also provided.
     
  4. To determine the actual manufacturer of the graphics card, make note of the Subsystem Vendor ID and match it to the manufacturer using the lookup table below.

Windows® Device Manager

Provided that the AMD proprietary graphics software and driver are installed and functioning correctly, the manufacturer and model of the AMD graphics card can also be found using the Windows® Device Manager.

To locate the manufacturer and model of the installed AMD graphics card, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Device Manager and expand Display adapters and the model of the graphic card should be visible.  In this example, the graphics card model is the Radeon RX 580 Series.

     
  2. To determine the manufacturer of the graphic card, the Subsystem Vendor ID is required.  To locate the Subsystem Vendor ID, right-click the listed graphics device and click on Properties.
  3. Go to Details tab, select Hardware Ids under Property.
  4. In the example shown above the Subsystem Vendor ID string is: SUBSYS_E3661DA2.
    Since only the last four alphanumeric characters in the SUBSYS string segment are used to determine the Subsystem Vendor ID, this Subsystem Vendor ID is: 1DA2
     
  5. Once the graphics card Subsystem Vendor ID has been found, match it to the list below of manufacturers to identify the manufacturer or origin of the graphics card.
