While playing BF4, after around 5 mins of gaming, screen became black, I heard a Windows notification sound and monitor informs "no signal". Come on AMD!!! You fixed nothing!!! Do not be so impatient!!! Test drivers first!!! Had to return to 19.12.1 once again. (I always use latest DDU). I find it useless to test other games.

Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm on 20.1.1 and I can confirm they did fix enhanced sync. When enabled I couldn't start some games like Starcraft II and Shadow of the Tomb Raider to name just two (there were more). It went to a black screen. And I have also been running this for about an hour and a half with no crashes. (crossing fingers)
I have not tried enabling hardware acceleration in chrome, steam, and other launchers yet. I'm just testing stability of enhanced sync.
Until the first black screen - no. After disabling not yet tested.
But there is still a problem when nothing is started from games or programs and the computer is idle for 5-10 minutes, then in most cases a black screen appears. Sometimes it helps to move the mouse, but most often you have to restart the computer or reconnect the HDMI cable.
In rare cases, instead of a black screen, ripples appear, similar to old TVs without a signal.
Sorry for my English, using google translate
For the black screen when starting some games issue, try disabling Enhanced Sync and then try the game again. If this works you'll have to completely uninstall the driver using DDU in safe mode and then reinstall 20.1.1. Enhanced Sync will then stop causing the black screens on some game startups. At least it did for me.
Thanks for the tips. I always use DDU in conjunction with AMD's utility to uninstall the driver. I always turned off Enhanced Sync right away and never used it, so there is almost no black screen during the game.
The black screen problem is mainly when the computer is waiting for 5-10 minutes.
And only recently there was a black screen when the browser was working, I described it above. Today I will check with disabled hardware acceleration.
