Is this your GPU? 

https://www.sapphiretech.com/en/consumer/nitro-rx-590-8g-g5-oc_c

If not please point to the correct GPU on that Sapphire site. 

If you are overclocking anything - don't.

Exactly which PSU do you have? 
Are you running separate powwer cables to each GPU power input?
Minimum PSU spec is 500W. 
That is if you run the GPU wiuth the Power Limit set to 0% and no overclocking. 

RX590's can pull lots of power.
I own a couple of them. 

Try clean install of Adrenalin 2020 21.3.2 drivers using this: 

https://community.amd.com/t5/drivers-software/amd-driver-fix-and-install-using-ddu/m-p/426238

Once you have done that it might fix your crashing. 

If not: 

Ram Testing: 

The next steps are to download and run PassMark MemTest86 pre-boot into Windows: run Karhu RamTest once you are in windows. 

https://www.memtest86.com/

Run Karhu RamTest once you are in windows, with GPU idle and GPU gaming. 

https://www.karhusoftware.com/ramtest/

PSU and GPU VRAM testing. 

Download and run OCCT from here: 
https://www.ocbase.com/

You can also use OCCT to test motherboard RAM. 

Thanks.

Hello. Refer to the solution of the problem for older games. https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2311033-AC-Origins-crashing-at-cutscenes-AMD?p=15397975 I recommend a calculator and calculation of the minimum power of the power supply: https://www.bequiet.com/en/psucalculator Please remember about the efficiency of the power supply, technical parameters EFFICIENCY. A power supply marked with 500W never has such power. For the calculation, please add a 10-15% surplus and compare it with the weldability of the power supply if it is enough.
