What about with 14.10?

BTW you gave output from lshw which does not include the device IDs so it's
a little ambiguous. This is why I use lspci. For example, I have:

$ lspci -vvnn| grep -i "vga controller" -A 11

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core
processor Graphics Controller [8086:0156] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA

In this case 8086 is Intel Coporation. The 0156 is a 3rd Gen Core processor
Graphics Controller or a Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller.

The 03 refers to a Display controller and the 00 after it VGA compatible
controller, by the way. So that's another something you can grep against.

You can look all these things up at http://pciids.sourceforge.net
