If this is some Hardware issue. Then probably the drivers will trade off some boost performance for stability. So maybe a lot of benchmarks should be updated (maybe there is no change at all). Now. To be honest my games sometimes crash with a GTX1080. This is in rare scenarios. Like DX12 (Division 2 or MHW) but only when using a monitoring app in background. If I close the monitoring app almost never crashes. With Vulkan in path of exile I only got crashes while loading a new map, never while playing with action. But anyway Vulkan is marked as "Beta" in POE game. So this could be really a driver bug. I'm just saying that PASCAL sometimes fails on me. And Pascal is old enough. Ampere is new, so I expect it to have a lot of issues. Especially considering how all the GPUs need a "Game Ready Driver" nowadays, instead of just running more generic software that works 100% stable and performant out of the box with any game.
