Graphical glitches with Vega 8 on Manjaro KDE

Folks, I am new to manjaro, this is my first installation. I'm having problems similar to this report in this topic that was closed, but I couldn't understand how I could solve this problem with what was posted there.

This is exactly what is happening as reported by @hamstersztyk below.

I started seeing weird graphical glitches, occasionally in 2d/3d graphics programs, sometimes in the UI, and very frequently in Firefox. The glitches are random lines on the screen, sometime with some content from another place on the screen. In attached screenshots you can see that textures in graphical applications are sometimes corrupted as well. I don't think it's a corrupted GPU because I don't have any problems with it on Windows 10

Can someone explain to me?

Hi, have you updated your mobo to the latest bios/UEFI?
I'm having issues with B450 mobo and 2400g. Some things I've tried that may help you are:
try other kernels like 5.4 LTS, even older ones like 4.19 or 4.14;
turn off compositor as described in the wiki:
"To disable the XFCE window manager's compositor
Following are two ways to turn off compositing in Xfce.
Using the Xfce GUI:
Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks -> Compositor tab ->
uncheck 'Enable display compositing' checkbox"
try video-modesetting driver
None of the above is dangerous and can be easily undone. I've done all as part of troubleshooting my own problems.
