    Where did you get that information?
    That is wrong. If you intend to use your dedicated graphics card as primary display, you need a software like LucidVirtu to use QuickSync. I have been able to use QuickSync (i7 3770) perfectly with my nVidia as primary display in Windows 7. You can also use QuickSync with Optimus technology.
    Anyway, I don't know why we're talking about the discrete card. I meant to use QuickSync at least with the iGPU as the primary display (which also works well on Windows 7, without having to use LucidVirtu course)

      You need additional software. We refer to a native windows solution supported from the graphics driver without crappy third party software or dummys or some other workarounds. Egur from Intel told it.

        I see no problem with that. You can download this third party software from Intel's website or motherboard manufacturer site. And I do not think LucidVirtu or Optimus are crap.
        Anyway again, I don't know why we are talking about discrete cards. At least I want Linux support for Quick Sync using only my iGPU as primary display (Windows 7 does not need third party software for that)
