lspci -v

and look for something like this (mainly the "audio device" bit, the rest
may be different):

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio
Controller (rev 02)
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device d701
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
	Memory at e0320000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
