    I was so fixated on the white knight forking black king to queen it took me forever to notice the actual solution. So this was cool.

    After 1. Qd4+ Kxd4, 2. Nd7# is the only move to checkmate.  It is the only move by the c5 knight which stops 2...Rxa7 and 2...Ke5.

    how does this benfit white? its note mate and no more queen?

    um... yes it is

    Sometimes you need to sac the queen in order to get the quick checkmate as this example plainly illustrates.

    Exactly, because the knight blocks the rook from capturing the DSB applying check. If the knight gets moved to d3, the rook captures that bishop and play continues. However it is also a strong move because it is also a discovered attack on the black queen, but Polgar saw that moving the knight to the square blocking the rook was the end of the game.
