Also this is after a fresh install.

I have the same problem, but mine is on RX 5700. Almost always crash with youtube, even with only 1 single tab open.

Not a single issue with AAA games, but crashs at least once a day. Somethings shuting down de power resolves the problem until next pc reset.

Tried some "fix" that i found on google, but no luck. AMD seens to not care about this problem with their customers. All drives are up to date. 

Also, the crashs get more or less frequent with every AMD driver update. With makes me believe that is a problem with the AMD product.

I'm also having the same problem. BSOD when just on the desktop while browsing. The BSOD is usually about atikmpag.sys. I've switch my RX 5700 XT to just using Intel onboard and get no crashing. I've done a clean install of windows and the issue came back about 1 hour after getting back into windows.

The RX 5700 XT is quickly becoming a very disappointing product. I had no issues like with my nvidia card.

Let me know if anything more I can provide.
