    dmidecode utility can display information stored in BIOS.
    lshw will list hardware.

    Hello and welcome and welcome to the forums!

    The best way to know the details about the your motherboard is to check the user manual. If you don't have it, the commands provided above should reveal the motherboard model and from that you can lookup the online manual.
