It seems that the 18.2.3 driver causes my PC to completely freeze at random. A complete hard lock.

The same frame gets displayed with no response from the mouse or other input peripherals.

No crashes, restarts, BSOD-s or similar things happen, just the complete freeze.

Noticed it mostly happening with open Chrome with multiple tabs from which a one plays a YT video, but it also happens without Chrome or Youtube.

At first, I thought it was the updated (recent) AsMedia USB drivers, but that's not it.

Reverting to an older driver (like the 18.2.1) seems to stop the issue.

Do you experience the same issue or something similar?
