If you watch the boot screen the machine BIOS messages will tell you !
I've had several systems where all the relevant details are hidden

I have also had several that display the details without this crappy
Yes I agree ! It seems that manufacturers are trying to reduce the
amount of information that can be gleaned by users, by introducing a
splash screen to hide the info. Very annoying :-(
A grub option disables the splash screen or use the f1 (fx(?)) to
go to the other boot display which displays the messages.
My splash is disabled but sometimes the rolling messages are a bit
too quick for reading....
Probable the splash is to emulate m$ windows as some installs may
be done to go directly to runlevel 5, X11).
There are two splash screens. One is the one that the bios displays as
the bios comes up, tests the system and then displays the bootloader.
then there is the splash screen that the OS displays. This one can
usually be negated with Esc. but as you say, it scrolls huge amounts of
material by quickly.
