Is it possible to determine the vendor name of the memory used in a dedicated GPU in linux?

Under Windows, there is a tool called GPU-Z that shows this value, tho under linux it seems there is no tool to display that value...

GPU I'm using is a Geforce GTX 1060 using Cuda8 and Nvidia proprietary drivers


  • I no longer have a NVidia card and I can't find an old file, but if you have lshw do sudo lshw -html > /path/to/some/htmlfile.html and view it in a browser. Very nice full hardware listing.

  • Thanks, I read in a nother comment that apparently the Nvidia linux driver does not support that feature so it might not be possible. Aug 12, 2017 at 0:21

According to this NVIDIA forum thread, there's no way to get the vendor name in Linux.
