Intel IGD where Aspeed AST2400 via motherboard is only video out?

I have an odd question regarding a Supermicro X11SSL-F I was recently gifted and whether it makes sense to pair it with a CPU having an integrated GPU. I don't believe the motherboard supports video out from the integrated GPU, but I would still like to access the GPU hardware and pass it to a VM to take advantage of it (such as hardware transcoding of videos for Plex server).

Since the only video output from the motherboard is via VGA using Aspeed AST2400, I want to know whether the Intel HD Graphics P630 hardware on a Xeon E3-1245 v6 could still be accessed and utilized, even if it is not used to drive a monitor. I do not have a CPU with integrated graphics in order to test lspci output, so I would like to have some input before wasting any unecessary time and money.

Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction?

Humbly yours,
Hi, i successfully use hd610 GPU of my pentium G4560T on asrock E3c236d2i for plex/emby transcoding in LXC container. Some motherboards with ipmi can do that, some not. I think there is a big chance that you board can utilize iGpu for plex/emby.
I know that Supermicro X11SSH-F can do what you want....
I cant post links, google "c236 igd ipmi" on unraid forum.
I think it will not work because of the C232 chipset.
I have a P10S-I motherboard with this chipst.
Before having a E3-1230V6 (no iGPU) i had a G4600T with integrated HD 630, and lspci had never list the iGPU.
Thanks for the feedback! I think cromatn5 may be right that C232 chipset is going to be the limiting factor for IGD. Unless someone else says otherwise, I'm going to assume I would need C236 chipset in order to take advantage of any IGD.
