Looks to me like the same thing that happens when not the latest graphic card drivers are used.

Please make sure you have installed the latest drivers from the NVIDIA website:

I have been going to the wrong page for nvidia driver downloads, and thought the driver I had was the newest. I went to your link, downloaded a new driver. Thank you very much. I turned on Blender, hit materials, did some UV editing, no crashes. Thank you all for your hard and tireless work. This is an amazing age to have Blender and people like you.

Upgrading driver from 355.82 to 391.35 fixed this for me. Thanks.
