We are looking in to this, and are working actively with our hardware partners to identify and solve the underlying issues.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind some of these crashes may be the result of localised driver-related issues and the like.

More information in the articles linked below. Please be aware this may reduce the rate at which you experience GPU-related crashes, but may not eliminate them at this time - please remember, we are looking in to it!:

Existing reports (once we have confirmed the crash being reported is the result of a GPU-related error) may be merged here, to help us keep track of the issues being reported.

Initially looks like a GPU driver issue. Please reinstall the latest Nvidia drivers, but use the “Clean Install” option. Note you must sleect the “Custom install” option first, then at one point it will ask you if you wish to do a clean install fo the previous drivers. If you use the “express install” option, the clean install option doesnt appear

Who has been able to solve this by changing or lowering their ‘Video’ options OR lowering their ‘Worker Thread’ count within the launcher’s ‘Settings’ menu?

IMPORTANT! We have released an experimental branch in Steam, which includes:

  • POTENTIAL Backend Error FIX. We understand this hasn’t worked for everybody, and are continuing to investigate
  • Additional logging for internal_error (Error Code: 2007)
  • Additional logging for nonexisting_channel (Error Code: 2001)
  • Additional logging for various GPU-related crashes, AND A POTENTIAL FIX!

Please note that the additional logging supports our investigation and will not necessarily solve the underlying issue for you at this time. We encourage anybody with these issues to use this branch, so we can continue work on addressing these issues as quickly as possible.
