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

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.
