Install the card and I think
$ lspci -v
will tell you. Eg:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: Lenovo Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 48
	Memory at b2000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
	Memory at a0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
	I/O ports at 5000 [size=64]
	[virtual] Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel driver in use: i915
	Kernel modules: i915
