> they work with the inbuilt drivers on every distro out of the box

No they don't work with any distro that uses linux-libre.

What gpu works on linux-libre?

Many old gpus store firmwares in non-volatile memory so that OS doesn't need to load them. Such gpus work with linux-libre as long as there is a free driver.

Pre 900 series Nvidia GPUs would, I think, since Nouveau wasn't forced to use signed nvidia firmware until the 900.
