The games I am referring to are Fallout 4 and Far Cry Primal. Both game have a similar issue - the weather effects in both games cause almost instantaneous CTD (TDR). In case of Fallout 4 it happens anytime a rain or a storm occurs, hence it is kind of random. However in Far Cry Primal it's much easier to duplicate as it happens always when you enter the northern (snowy) part of the map. Additionally other people reported that any object emitting light in the snowy region accelerates the occurrence of the error.
The issues are being talked about for about 6 months for Fallout 4 and ever since Far Cry was released on PC (March 1). I have tried about 80% of ideas and solutions I found on the forums of said games, yet nothing has worked. I will be send official tickets to AMD, Bethesda and Ubisoft later today, but I just wanted to leave a post on the forum as well, because maybe there is one genius out here who actually figured out a work around.
Here are my specs:

GPU: Asus Radeon R9 380, 4 GB DDR5, Strix 990/5700

Steam Drive: Samsung SSD 850 Evo, 250 GB
Data Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200, 1 TB 32 MB cache

Cheers and thanks for any help you can give!
