I am in the market for upgrading one of my servers, and given the apparent performance increase from the Xeon E3 v6 to Xeon E, I am looking into one of the Supermicro X11SC*-F motherboards with a Xeon E-21??G on it.

The question is; do any of the -F boards (other than the X11SCA-F, which is a workstation board) support using/passing through the iGPU while also using the ASpeed VGA port for the main system?

By passthrough, do you mean purely for transcoding or are you looking to output to a display in addition to the Aspeed?

According to Supermicro support - Only X11SCH-F has support for VHD (virtual hosted desktop). With the rest, you loose either of them.

I'm using a X11SCH-LN4F and E-2288G with Fedora 31 and Jellyfin (FOSS version of Plex) and hardware transcoding works fine.

There is a UEFI option for integrated graphics that you set to Enabled.
