Heavy visual artifacts in popular rhythm game osu!, please help

Issue Description: In the popular rhythm game osu! artifacts appear frequently in the form of horizontal black or white lines making the game unplayable.
The artifacts look exactly like this Screen Artifacting - YouTube only the game is different.
Even after a fresh installation of Windows 10 1903 and the latest AMD drivers 19.9.2 the issue persists, but with a fresh installation of Windows 7 and the latest AMD drivers the problem is gone.

Hardware:
GPU: R9 Fury X
CPU: 
AMD FX-6100
RAM: 8Gb Kingston HyperX 1600 CL9
Motherboard: GA-990XA-UD3
PSU: Zalman ZM-1200-EBT

The issue seems to be related to the Windows 10 drivers for Fiji based cards, since with an R9 270 the artifacts were gone, but when I tried a completely different Fury card the artifacts were still there.
This problem has been driving me crazy over an year now. Support for Windows 7 is ending soon and I cannot upgrade to Windows 10 with this issue present because it would mean that I wouldn't be able to play one of my favorite games, please help!
