Find your graphics chipset

lspci |grep VGA
Displays only the VGA adapter/chipset being used for the graphics. In this case, it gave me the "M22" and "Mobility Radeon x300" that I needed to research a graphics issue I was having.
Sample Output
~$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M22 [Mobility Radeon X300]
