Fortnite still hangs after 18.7.1

So, today Epic launch S5, and after I update the game my matches just randomly hangs/freeze after a while.
First I though "It must be an EPIC problem", didn't expect the first day of S5 went well, then driving trough the forums on Epic I found countless members with AMD graphics cards begin affected by this same issue, after hours of looking the solution seems to be "update the drivers to 18.7.1" I did and for some time worked, until now, that just hangs/freeze again.
I just wanted to report this, the game works better since 18.7.1, but just wanted to know that the issue is not fully solved, there is something yet thats causing game to freeze/hang.

I am having the same issue with Fortnite. I formatted my computer, reinstalled windows 10. I have tried the latest driver for my radeon 580. I tried the chipset drivers to install and installed an older driver that came with the chipset drivers 18.5.1. No luck. Here is a link to my drive cloud Belarc system info. Belarc Advisor Computer Profile.html - Google Docs . Maybe @amd can find something that needs to be done with this info. If you need more stuff please reply with what you need AMD and ill get it to you. TY for the help!

Yes it does it just randomly stops displaying the image

like  a dvd pause button then about 3 seconds later the game realises and goes back to desktop

and brings up the epic report a crash app

It has happened to me 6 times in the last few days

2 with 18.6.1

4 with 18.7.1

after the first crash its summer here and my Sapphire R9 290 TRI-X gets upto 80 max where as its usually 75 max

bumped the fan speed to max = still does it (temp 68)

bumpred the fan speed to max and locked fps with vsync = still does it (temp 65)

Here's my last 3 crash dumps from the game

you can clearly see the graphics driver is timing out (FortniteGame.log scroll down to bottom)
