Open it up, have a look for the chip :-)
Do you know the make of the motherboard? Do a google search, find its
specs? Look at the manufacturer's website?
Once you have those, you might like to investigate the kernel docs in
Documentation/sound/. Grepping for the chip number may work.

Some of them, yes. Often the built-ins work identically to the board
versions, it's just a lot more difficult to remove the card it it breaks.
