How To Check Graphics Card In Windows 10

Introduction 

 
A graphics card, which is also known as a video card, display card, or graphics adapter, is a piece of hardware that is installed in a computer. It is responsible for generating all the text and pictures that are displayed on your screen. Nowadays, every processor has a built-in onboard graphics card.
 
All computers have a Graphics Card that handles everything from drawing your desktop and decoding videos to rendering demanding PC/laptop games. Most modern PCs have Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) made by Intel and NVIDIA.
 
The GPU is usually the most critical component when it comes to playing PC games. If you don’t have a powerful enough GPU, you can’t play newer PC games or you may have to play them with lower graphical settings. Some computers have low-power “onboard” or “integrated” graphics, while others have powerful “dedicated” or “discrete” graphics cards and if you want to know what Graphics Card you are using in Windows 10 then you have to follow certain steps:
