To check which GPU is being used during playback (with color grading or effects/transitions/titles) or during export, open Activity Monitor -> Window -> GPU History. A report back is much appreciated :)
I mean, given the time the benchmarks take, it can only be Quick Synch + RX 580.

How do you know it's using RX580 and not Intel QuickSync?
The time it takes which is consistent with Quick Synch + RX 580.

I haven't updated yet, but when I tested with Mojave and Adobe Premiere Pro, RX580 was used in full during playback and export, unlike on the Windows side, where it prefers to use only the IGPU primarily, and the dGPU only for the leftovers (this even with Nvidia one). I am guessing when I update my RX580 will still be utilized in full in Premiere Pro. Thanks for the feedback.

1. checked boot volume with
Code:
fsck_apfs -n -l -x /dev/rdisk1s1
before updating
2. updated Clover to 4784 via Clover Configurator
3. updated system to 10.14.2 18C54 via System Preferences > Software Update

All seems to be fine so far. :)

Didn't work for me - neither through the updater or the combo update (updating from 14.0).
After the installer reboots, and right before the login window, the screen turns black.

Are you using Lilu & Whatever Green? I have a Gigabyte Z370-Gaming 7 & 8700k. No frame buffer patches and it hasn't skipped a beat yet.
EDIT: Also using 18,2 profile...
