RX 5700 XT Black Screen

I've replaced  my RX480 XT XFX with a new RX5700 XT Red Devil.

At first i had black screens while playing "Division 2". Either at launch or while ingame.

Every other game was fine. Today it happened while playing "Control".

I am also having the same issue with VLC in fullscreen, it begins with stuttering and then crashes into a black screen.
To be sure  i've tested this with another program (kmplayer) and i had the same problem.

Googling the  problem i've found a sollution into it.  By disabling "Radeon Enchanced Sync" the video program does not go black screen or crashing at all. 
I believe this proves it's not a faulty graphic card but it is a software problem.

 

 

So now Black Screen appears only in games which sometimes i am forced to shut down my pc simply because nothing else is working (sometimes not even the reboot).

 

I tried different drivers versions but the problem is the same.

Although i always try to support amd (radeon 7970, rx480) since this is an issue for 5700 series several months now, i would like to ask if someone knows if this covers a refund.
