UPDATE: I had a little more success with removing AA but unfortunately I ended up refunding the card and now run a 2070 Super without issue.

I do NOT have this issue in any other game that I've seen. Although, since I built the rig I've only played BL3, witcher 1 & 2, and Doom 2016. I haven't tried witcher 3 with my old 970 yet.
I've been trying to play the witcher 3 on my new rig but have been unable to get the game to play longer than an hour, and usually any longer than 5 minutes. Sometimes it crashes almost immediately upon the game loading in.
I've attempted underclocking, reinstalling drivers (DDU in safe mode and reinstalling), w/ and w/o mods, reinstalling game, verifying game cache, etc.
Some things I've noticed are the gpu used to run at 99-98% usage the moment I was in the game, but after I disabled the gpu in device manager -> restart -> re-enable gpu => restart, it now runs at 60 - 80 %. For Awhile this seemed to have fixed the issue, but now its back, and the gpu usage is starting to hover closer to 80 - 85%. Still not 99 though.
I'm attaching one of the many crash logs.
This is a game error. nVidia GPUs also give the same error. As fast travels increase, the game crashes on a loading screen. I had the same problem and it has nothing to do with GPU.
I don't think this is right. I was experiencing these issues way before I'd done any fast travelling, literally the moment I started the game in White Orchard. Also I recently fixed the issue by increasing my GPU power limit by 20%. It may not have been an issue solely with my GPU, but the game definitely wasn't playing nice with it.
I played through the Witcher 3 on old drivers on my RX 580 however I had to raise my Power Limit to the max of +50 and use a custom fan curve. So with AMD we both had to adjust power for it to work.
I played through it again on my RTX 2060 late last year and it played fine. I also am right now almost halfway through the game again playing at 4K on my RTX 2070 Super, with the most recent driver and started with the last months release. I am not experiencing any issues.
I've started experiencing issues again. Changing to a 2070 isn't really an option for me unfortunately. Would you be able to share how I'd go about setting a custom fan curve?
I know. Not. Because I spent hours playing with both nVidia and AMD. This problem is unfortunately about the game that is a GOG related hook etc ... there is a problem with the game and the game stops by creating a crash file. Also crash file did not give DX device hung error for you.
no worries! I just wanted you to know I had no issues playing that game and still don't. I do have the Steam version. I saw the other poster mentioned GOG. So maybe something going on there. Regardless lots of variables are going on in a PC and any one of them can cause issues for one, while another has none.
