How do I check what video card I have?

Horribly dumb question this feels like, but how do I check what video card I have in Windows 7? Everything I find that reports this, including ATI's own software, reports nothing other than "ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series". Considering I know there's a big difference in performance between each model in the 5700 series, I want to know what I have. I bought the video card some time last year and just don't remember which 5700 it is. I tried Googling and searching but haven't found anything.

I was hoping to not have to take my case out and take the thing out just to check.

Thanks!

  1. Actually unless I'm mistaken all there is is the 5750 and 5770, which isn't a huge different between the two, so..... yeah...

    Regardless there are tons of ways. DXDIAG, CPU-z, Device Manager, open the case and look at that card, are some easy ways.

    DXDIAG, CPU-z, Catalyst Control Center, Device Manager and DeviceID only say it's a 5700 series and not which 5700. But, I'm satisfied that there isn't a huge difference between them so it isn't a bother anymore then. Opening my case is a bit of a pain so I guess I'll find out next time I do an upgrade in there.

    Thanks for the info!
  3. None of that should be true :lol: O.o!.. but I know MSI Afterburner and GPU-z will tell you the correct one.
  4. Well... :ouch: I'm thinking at this point ATI's drivers don't distinguish between the two at all? Unless Juniper is the GPU in only one of them. Out of curiosity, maybe I'll see what Ubuntu says later being that's on another partition.

    Based on the shaders on that screenshot, I can tell you it's a 5770.

    Spec's of the 5770 and 5750 are here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5770,2446-2.html
