    When you install macOS Catalina, it will create two (2) separated "read-only" partitions in the same APFS container, one for system files and second for data files. The first one (system files) is named Macintosh HD and the second one (your data files) is named Macitosh HD - Data, which is hidden by default. Finder will only show Macintosh HD partition with the traditional folders (such like System). If you want to be able to write on these partitions, SIP should be disabled (nothing new when you use hackintosh, right?  ).
     
    The Data partition will be mounted in /System/Volumes/Data but its original place is here, in /System/Library/Templates/Data. Like I said, we'll have to wait to see if our developers will be able to provide an alternative way, such like third kexts loading with Clover.
     
    Now, HD 5770 does not works since 10.14 (while Intel HD 3000 does) - No reasons found why especially this one (this GPU works OOB in all previous versions), nor any workaround. And I do not think this will change with 10.15.
     
    Now about other non-Metal GPUs, which work on 10.14, I guess they should (in theory) work on 10.15 as well. The only issue could come from what was said above.
     
    And yes, that's what it is a hackintosh - A long (hi)story.

    Be aware that macOS Catalina is supporting APFS only!!! No more support for HFS+, nor MBR.
     
    Maybe we'll see a workaround in near future, not sure.

    Alright, so for those who were wondering, myself and @parrotgeek1 have been working on this acceleration issue on our own, and have come to the conclusion that it is not going to be possible to achieve graphics acceleration on non-Metal video cards in Catalina. This is for various reasons, but the main one is the SkyLight and CoreDisplay dependencies. In Catalina, SkyLight and CoreDisplay have been changed greatly, and are interdependent on each other. Meaning, if you replace one from an older version of macOS, you must replace the other, otherwise you'll be left with a ton of unresolved symbols. The problem with doing this, though, Catalina's AppKit relies on all the new functions present in the Catalina CoreDisplay framework. You cannot use a copy of AppKit from an older macOS version, without causing a ton more unresolved symbols.

    TLDR, based on this analysis, non-Metal GPU acceleration is not, and will not be possible on 10.15 Catalina. With that said, I will not be releasing the "usual" patcher for 10.15. I do not believe the general public should be using a copy of macOS without full graphics acceleration (I sure as heck know I wouldn't want to), and I'm not going to release a patch that results in extremely poor system performance for the end user (not to mention I would get thousands of complaints per day about it if I did).

    I will, however, more than likely make somewhat of a "cut down" patch, designed for use only on Mac Pro systems and some iMacs that have had their video cards upgraded.

    I'm as disappointed as you all are about this discovery, and deeply apologize I won't be able to provide a patcher because of it.
     
    bom, acredito que uma das grandes vertentes deu uma desanimada, André.

    From what I've heard there is some focus on cross platform development, with some existing iOS apps being ported over already, and iPad apps can be ported with a little work.
    Also it seems it will now be possible to use your iPad as an external display.
