Why does VMware Workstation Pro 15 not support RX 580 graphics card?

Hello Community,

I used VMWare Workstation Pro 15.0 some days ago, but I couldn't even open the Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.1.1 software by right clicking on the desktop screen as it does work on the host pc. I made sure that I installed it correctly and even the installation wizard told me the software was already installed. So I went to the windows settings and tried to find out if windows could recognize my graphics card but under the window "devices" it was not listed. I also assured that I added the graphics card as I created the virtual machine. After seeking for the solution on the web I couldn't find anything that may help me so now my question is if there is some special software/driver needed or is it not even possible to make the host´s graphics card run on VMWare.

(maybe VMware has a problem with one of the components, that is the reason for the list)
