Bought a new PC with amd gpu (rx 5700) about 2 months ago and I haven't had any problems playing low requirements games (LoL, Dota2) and even had flawless experience with Watch Dogs 2.
Then I bought AC Origins and Odyssey - and that's when the issues started. Whenever I start a game in any of these, I can either get through starting cutscene and play for about 5 seconds before it crashes or it crashes during the cutscene. The PC reboots on it's own after the black screen. I've read many posts online about it being probably drivers issue, but no solutions worked for me so far.
1. Updating drivers
2. Installing drivers after removing them with DDU
3. Installing drivers after removing it during Adrenalin installation
4. Updating motherboard chipset drivers
5. Setting Windows power program to high efficiency
6. I also tried a few older driver versions that different people mentioned working
7. Setting all the graphic settings in Adrenalin to off and the profile to standard (instead of gaming)

I had almost same history like you
and turn out my gpu defect
you its hard when pay 400 euro and get a shittt
Ive send it back to store for change and ill sell and get a nvidia
At least you wont get alot stress
Go to OCCT power test and put the system to the test for at least one hour. If the problem occurs, the PSU may be causing the problem. Also read your maximum temperatures for the CPU and the GPU.
Ran the power test for 1 hour and the crash didn't happen. Neither did OCCT detect any errors. Temperatures were 85 for CPU and 80 for GPU. Do you have any tips or is it just GPU's fault and I should try to return it?
If there was a problem with your system, you would surely have a problem with OCCT power test.
If I were you, I would lower the GPU core frequency by -5% or -10% with WattMan.
I also saw that the engineer working on the AMD forum stated that some poor quality HDMI and DP cables caused similar problems. So you have to look for the error either in the core frequency or in the display cable.
