I went to go check ... and realized that I don't use QJackCtl on any 
system now. I switched to Cadence via the KXStudio repositories sometime 

Ralf, thanks for the command line. Here's what mine reports:
hwinfo --cpu --gfxcard | grep Model | sort -u
   Model: 6.60.3 "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz"
   Model: "Intel 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller"

My setup is very simple, so a complex graphical graph rendering is not a 
worry to me. But I thought back to my QJackCtl days and thought: Yes, 
the old list way is very clear and easy to use.
