    Why use ASPEED if the 7000 series has IGPU? Wasn't the purpose of it to have basic display output?

    I can think of this particular scenario.
    Let's say you want to build Plex server and rely on the iGPU for transcoding, but you also need to use IPMI, so video output is dedicated to that task, so ASPEED is there for basic video output or simply offering backbone video for the IPMI
    I could be wrong, though.

    Because ASPEED IS the standard in server (kind of mandatory on pro segment), we never use IGP or APU on pro side.

    Using this kind of CPU for a Plex server is like try to kill a fly with an atom bomb... :)

    Most of the time there is still an output for integrated GPU, but it is never used, they use ASPEED due of the 100% compatibility with everything, and if they need more power they get Radeon pro or Quadro.
