Windows – How to find the hardware chipset information


Is there any software, using which, I can detect the chipset versions/name (like Audio ALC889, Network 8111E, etc). I want to detect these chipsets of my hardware.

I tried software CPUID, but it's not providing such information.

What I really need is this. Check the website

  • Audio is Realtek® ALC 892
  • LAN is Realtek® 8111E

I want to see this information from my system/BIOS or any tool.

  • I typically discover chipsets by going to the Device Manager, right clicking on the appropriate device and going to Properties.

    On the Details tab, sift through the drop down options for anything telling. If it's not obvious there, I take the ID from Hardware Ids and google them.
