    Query the filesystem
    Unix-like OSs (e.g. Android & Linux)
    On unix-like operating systems, the GPU driver version string is written to the file system when the driver is installed. The ‘cat’ command can be used to print the string to the console.

    PowerVR Series5 and earlier
    cat /proc/pvr/version

    PowerVR Series6
    Android
    cat /d/pvr/version
    Linux
    sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/pvr/version

    Query in your application
    OpenGL ES
    In the OpenGL Es APIs (1.x, 2.0 & 3.0), eglQueryString(, EGL_VERSION) and glGetString(GL_VERSION) can be used to query the driver version.
