Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, and Compressor 4 require a graphics card that supports Metal, an Apple technology that lets the system and apps efficiently tap into the capabilities of today’s graphics processors (GPUs). If you're editing 4K video, using 3D titles, or editing 360º video, 1GB of VRAM is recommended.
The following aftermarket graphics cards support Metal in macOS Mojave and later:

MacRumors spoke to an Nvidia representative about the Nvidia drivers and lack of approval for the drivers. In fact, Apple isn’t even consistently communicating with Nvidia about the ongoing issue.
” “while we post the drivers, it’s up to Apple to approve them,” and suggested that we contact Apple. We followed that advice, but Apple has yet to respond to multiple requests for comment.”
