Are you using a dedicated gpu? Is it Nvidia? As their web drivers are pretty bad to be honest. Some version releases are better than others and of course no Mojave support. I swapped to an AMD Gpu and see no graphical errors or have any slowness in navigation or zooming etc. I also use Live and that's running great. If apps aren't using metal then they would be using opencl I guess? That should run fine anyway.

Or maybe your config file isn't quite right? I switched to the iMacPro1,1 smbios and it is totally the best model ID if you have a dedicated GPU to force hardware acceleration. igpu never really worked that well for me (for quicksync encoding) even when I was sure it was set up correctly.
