@R4TH0SSo I just underclocked the memory on the PC and it's working now. Turns out the RTX 3070 doesn't like 3600mhz memory speeds with certain setups, even though cpu and most games are fine with it. It's running at 3200mhz now and apex is fine. Bit of a shame really as it means can't couple Infinity Fabric with memory when using an RTX 3070 but ah well.
Only thing I can recommend is if you have a DOCP / XMP profile set in your bios or memory OC'd, try disable or underclock it and see if it works.
Official answer via the Twitter account @EAHelp:
I understand. To be honest with you, looking through your thread, it seems you have gone quite deep into troubleshooting. You clearly know what you are doing and so I am not sure how helpful my assistance will be for you. Since you mention that this only started happening since the last update, it could be the case that this needs to be fixed on our end and perhaps no amount of troubleshooting on your end will fix it. The good news is that you have already got off to a great start as the forums are where the games team picks up bugs like this for investigation. It would be really awesome if you could give your report some time to be picked up by the games team so they can investigate. I know this has been reported in the past but as you said, it was from older versions of the game and seems to be fixed for those parties. I am sure, just like the others, yous will be fixed soon too. -Shay
I have the same issue. 90% of the time it happens when transitioning to the the champion screen just before the game starts.
It only started with the season 8 update. Never had problems before.
The only recent change in my computer was when I updated NVidia drivers to the latest version.
Playing on steam.

I don't want to modify my hardware for this game to run... The Birthday update also didn't fix my crashes.
Had three crashes in one hour today alone... I actually wanted to buy something at the event, but definitely not now with this still happening.
