I managed to figure out the reason and it is not driver related.
The motherboard (supermicro X11ssl) has a built-in GFX (ast2400) and the device that shows up is this GFX, not the built-in one, (windows doesn't know about it so it gets the default vga driver, and this is irrespective of bios settings.
for some reason the X11ssl does not support the built-in intel graphics, and can therefore not be used for applications requiring quick sync

Correct, if the motherboard has a built-in video card, then in that case the graphics from the processor get disable, the video card is the one that will support everything related to graphics, and in order to make it work properly, the drivers that are needed are the ones that belong to it.
Since this is a built-in video card and not an external one, the graphics drivers that are available for the board should work for this PC.
