Hi again Vassili,
I'd like to track down more details on when support might be available for your case. Could you tell us a bit more about the system(s) you are targeting? Information like processor number would be helpful sincethere are several graphics options available on ourserverprocessors.
Since the 2600K is considered a desktop processor (more info at ark.intel.com) the graphics driver and Media SDK are only validatedfor Windows 7 and Vista. Media SDK supportwith Windows Server 2008 is being investigated for some server class processors, but no official plans or timelines are available yet. As covered previously, using Media SDK as a service may also need to wait on developments for other operating systems.
Since one of the benefits of Media SDK is a high-level API , progressin yourWindows 7 environment should port easily. We will get the message out as soon as the supported platforms list changes.

There are several graphics options for this family of processors. On ark.intel.com check the "Graphics Specifications" section. If Quick Sync Video is listed there is at least a possibility for Media SDK hardware acceleration to work.
However, as I mentioned before, Media SDKhardware accelerationvia the graphics driverfor these processors is still under investigation. Please stay tuned.
Yes, Xeon E3 has HD Graphics 3000 and supports Intel Quick Sync. It's Intel Xeon E3-1275
