Windows 7: Hardware identification

Hardware identification

I'm looking for a hardware identification program (such as Everest, SIW, SiSoftSandra, etc) that identifies Storage Controllers in their own section (for ease of looking them up).

Here's the second instance of this that I've found recently:

It's HP installing drivers for many controllers - just in case you've got that one installed on your HP system.

I'll use this to help by updating the drivers that are required, and unloading the drivers that aren't needed.

Does anyone know of a program that meets these requirements?
