Linux how to view video card make and exact model

Normally lspci will show you just like this and would suggest they are exactly the same card:

1a:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/580] (rev e7)
1c:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/580] (rev e7)

lspci -vnn is the answer

As we can see one is a Gigabyte and the other is an MSI card.  What's interesting about Linux is that it says what you may not already know bute the RX 470/480/570/580 are essentially the same cards/family.
