Your Windows 11 PC uses a Graphics Processing Unit (or GPU) or a graphics card to display graphics. Sometimes you need to know which GPU your PC uses, but it’s not always obvious. Here’s how to check.
The quickest way to see which graphics card your PC uses is by using the built-in Task Manager utility. To launch Task Manager, right click the Start button and select “Task Manager” in the list.
When Task Manager opens, click the “Performance” tab. If you have more than one GPU in the machine, each one will be listed under names like “GPU 0” or “GPU 1” in the sidebar. Click the one you’d like to find information on.
On the information panel for the GPU you selected, you can find the name of the GPU or graphics card in the upper-right corner just above the charts. In this example, the GPU is “Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620,” but it will likely be different in your case.
On the same GPU task manager panel, you can also find information about how much memory your GPU has. You’ll find it in the lower-left corner under “GPU Memory.”
When you’re done, close Task Manager. Any time you need to check again, just re-launch Task Manager and check the Performance > GPU tabs. Happy computing!
