This USB card reader:

plus a free-to-download program called http://pannetrat.com/Cardpeek/ lets you check any chip card on your computer to see which terminal protocols it supports. That's how I've been verifying the chip capabilities of every card I get for a few years now.

If you need more info on this, see this thread in the credit cards forum:
