Screens flicker on drivers after driver 19.5.2

I've wanted to update my drivers for quite a while now but any attempt to update past 19.5.2 eventually results in a nauseating flicker that persists until I reboot. I haven't pinned down exactly what causes it but it looks like it's certain effects in games or even common applications. I've filmed a video of causing the problem (apologies for the length): https://youtu.be/JTNwivSCaZo.

 

Relevant specs:

Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 18363)

Intel i5-4690

ASUS Radeon RX 580 DUAL-RX580-O8G

3x ViewSonic XG2401

 

I'm not the only person with this issue, but this discussion has no replies: Flicker screen after updating drivers adrenaline We both have multiple monitors and drivers after 19.5.2 are unstable.

 

I could continue to use 19.5.2 but I've begun to have other weird intermittent problems with certain games (especially CoD:MW) that I suspect are fixed in the current driver version. Thanks in advance!
