Exact requirements for HW supported H264 encoding



I've seen a lot of posts regarding the topic of getting HW support for QSV and became a bit puzzled about it - i have a mac mini with i7 2620M CPU and Windows 8.1, the sys_analyzer.exe is showing that hardware acceleration is not supported so this means i'm basically as well off as running ffmpeg, right? I can't install any Intel Graphics drivers since i don't have an Intel HD GPU but an AMD one instead. So is the GPU a must have requirement and the QSV support in the CPU itself means nothing? Or am I able to get the acceleration support somehow?

Thanks in advance

Yes, It is absolutely a "must have requirement" that both the Intel Processor Graphics and driver exist.  Your Apple Mac Mini does not have this.
