Default old and new calander

Hi all, I have a question...

do any of the Catholic churches of the Eastern rite use the "old calander" for Easter like the Orthodox churches do? Or do all of the Catholic churches celebrate Easter on the same date?

Eastern Rites. Plural. There are 5 by the currently normative method of counting. (Byzantine, Alexandrian, Antiochene, Armenian, and Chaldean.) Most with several churches. (By the other method, there are 23+)

The UGCC uses both, sometimes even within the same eparchy.
ISTR the Armenian Church uses the old calendar only.
