How to show motherboard model?

Surely there exists a command to print out the system's mother board model?

Opening up the chassis is not an option.

dmidecode can do this. Here's an example output from my system:

# dmidecode --type 2
Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs.
SMBIOS 3.1.1 present.

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 15 bytes
Base Board Information
        Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
        Product Name: PRIME B450-PLUS
        Version: Rev X.0x
        Serial Number: <redacted>
        Asset Tag: Default string
        Features:
                Board is a hosting board
                Board is replaceable
        Location In Chassis: Default string
        Chassis Handle: 0x0003
        Type: Motherboard

Type 2 corresponds to Baseboard.

Try reading the files in /sys/class/dmi/id/, some of them don't require root privileges. For example:

  • board_name
  • board_vendor
