This question has an answer
lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'
for its output it gives:
Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel driver in use: radeon
In my additional driver tab I see 3 drivers:
Using X.ord Xserver -AMD? ATI dispaly driver wrapper from
xserver-xorg-video-ati(open source, tested)
Using Video driver from AMD graphics accelerators from
Using Video driver for AMD graphics accelerators from
The 3rd one is selected.
The response of
lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|Display' is
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) Subsystem: Dell Device 0572 Kernel driver in use: i915 -- 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

- I want to understand if my AMD card is served as graphics driver or i915?
- If not how can I make it happen?
