This post is still on the topic of supported Nvidia Kepler graphics cards. It will help others learn too. This thread is intended mainly for desktop graphics but your specific question shows the importance of actually researching which graphics core series you are using. Why GPU Zoo is important to use to see if your 750 is Kepler or Maxwell.Apologies just realized this is the desktop forum, got carried away in the thread without checking
So I have a MacBook Pro late 2013 with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M and as I checked on gpuzoo.com it does indeed have a Kepler base GK107.
To answer your question, no you don't need the web drivers for the 750M. Those are only for use with Sierra/High Sierra and dedicated graphics cards from the Maxwell and Pascal series. There is no need to install them on any Macbook Pro. It's perfectly OK to install Mojave on your MBP as it's fully supported. If you look at the desktop EVGA GTX 750 it's Maxwell based, over 1 year newer than GT 750M graphics. They used the GM107 chip instead of the older Kepler GK107.What would you realistically advise me to do? Stay with High Sierra or upgrade to Mojave/Catalina since my Kepler card has drivers that ship with macOS ?
Your 750M graphics are in fact Kepler. Nvidia made this confusing by putting "750" in both laptop and desktop lines. This is why I needed to post my Nvidia Compatibility thread, to clarify the Nvidia graphics idiosyncrasies.
In regard to using Adobe Photoshop, again that advice is mainly for Mac Pro owners that have Nvidia discrete cards from the Maxwell and Pascal series. It would make sense for them to switch to AMD when upgrading to Mojave. It shouldn't cause issues with your Metal 2 supported GTX 750M Kepler graphics.
