"dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" will offer you a list of drivers to
choose from. Google "site:lists.debian.org $CARD" (where $CARD is
your graphics card/chip) should dig out posts that mention what you
need to know.
lspci should tell you what's in the box:
0000:00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82810E DC-133 \
CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 03)
lspci -v will tell you more, and -vv tells even more. The above is
for an onboard Intel graphics controller which is used by the i810
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
