I installed the graphic card 'GTX TITAN X' and its driver from the website of NVIDIA.

and checked my graphic card name using the command 'nvidia-smi -L'

However, the printed output is follow.

GPU 0: Graphics Device (UUID: GPU-146fb7ad-3409-4e9e-28e5-69639bd6c3d0)

but, i checked the specification of the graphic card using the command 'sysinfo', and confirm the specification of that graphic card.

and I tried to experiment using CUDA and GPU, and its successed.

Is there any problem in checking the Graphic card name?

You easily can check it this way ...

Open a terminal and execute :

lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D'  

The output will be something like this :

Another way to check it is ...

Open a terminal and execute :

lshw -numeric -C display  

The output will be something like this :

as you have an nvidia card you can run this command. nvidia-smi it should be installed along with your Nvidia Drivers

nvidia-smi

Output of the command is something like:

neil@ASUS:~$ nvidia-smi

neil@ASUS:~$

You may need update your PCI ID database with:

sudo update-pciids

Here are more commands i know to find Hardware devices that you can try.

Discover

to install discover run this command:

sudo apt-get install discover

to run discover

Run this is terminal

sudo discover | grep <Your GPU manufacturer>

The output of this command may look like:

neil@Linux-Lap:~$ sudo discover | grep NVIDIA

hwinfo

sudo apt-get install hwinfo

terminal command:

sudo hwinfo | grep Model | grep <Your GPU manufacturer>

The output may look like this.

if sudo hwinfo | grep Model | grep <Your GPU manufacturer> shows nothing just type sudo hwinfo in terminal and press Ctrl + Shift+F and search for your Your GPU manufacturer
