Is there a utility or terminal command to tell you what graphics device and driver you are using?

Yes, one approach has been documented here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/i810

You can also run this command to locate the device:

lspci | grep VGA

If you run the same command with a -k switch, it will give you the driver, too.

lspci -k
