Event Timeline

I can confirm I see this issue with quadro 4000 series card. If I create a new general project and access materials, blender quits within a few seconds at most.

NVidia Driver version 353.62 (latest supported driver for the Quadro 4000)
Windows 10 x64 1803
I've attached the system Info file from blender for your information. I also tried the last version before release that i had installed, RC2 and it behaves the same way. The development build of 2.81 Alpha from 6th August 2019 is also behaving in the same way.

I know a colleague who has a Quadro P5000 has no issue and I don't recall seeing it on a GTX 1060 either. Note: Can confirm no issue with a GTX 1060 so probably related to cards that are only supported by older drivers. However, in the case of the Quadro 4000 which is a decent card, this is really not ideal.

Please upgrade your GPU drivers to the latest official drivers from nvidia.
(This is the usual cause and solution for this bug).
If this doesnt help, please also try a fresh build from
Please report back if the issues persist after trying this, thx.

The drivers I mentioned are the only available drivers for the card, which I mentioned above. They have stopped issuing newer drivers so if it doesn't work with those, it won't work.

As it happens I got my PC replaced recently so for me it isn't an issue any more (RTX5000 + latest supported drivers = works fine, same version of OS) but it was incredibly frustrating before this happened.

The issue in the original report is for macOS and with a specific .blend file.

Crashes with a Quadro 4000 are unrelated, and we've had other reports confirming that installing the latest driver helps for that case, which is version 377.83.
