        I don't know. But it might say on motherboard manual or in the motherboard UEFI setup screen.
        From within Linux such information might be available somewhere under the /sys/ pseudo-directory or by tools such has "lshw".
        Also maybe outputted by "dmesg". Try "dmesg | grep acpi" or something.

          Agree, ACPI solves relatively simple problem with quite complicated way. What is more worse is that its reference library implementation ACPICA is a nightmare when it comes to use.

          Having a clean simple reference library for ACPI would definitely make easier to understand this technology.

            I tried that before posting, I didn't see anything that looked related to the ACPI version number
