Seem it was a hardware problem.
Aug 30 2019
I did have the driver from before and did a clean install of it to see as that was fine as far as I could tell a couple of months ago. Alas no difference and had put back the newest one after checking the previous driver. I can't check the other version number in this moment, but it was something like that.
The guy at the shop said it takes 6 to 8 weeks maybe more so I am screwed for 2 months and he said it doesn't mean the card that comes back will be without issues.
Still they will do an in house testing first so if I dont hear from them, then they also had issues, and that he gave no timeline but I would think I would hear from them within a week if it checked out on a different inhouse system (otherwise they will send it back on warranty). I guess I could have similarly tried it here in different hardware, but I am uncertain it would have even fit my old system (biggest card I have ever seen power consumption requirements etc.).

I am going to have the hardware checked and I think sent back to Asus. The 2080 Ti I had to wait two months for and I guess they rushed these cards out?
I will attempt to report back later.
Still I am thinking maybe there should be a way you assess instability in the graphics card response times on average and pop up or log a warning saying graphics is performing poorly.
The Blender system could have a setting to use 99% by default and let uses tune it down if it's causing the card to fry etc. I'm not sure it seems like not only a good idea to limit issues but to also let the user know it's not Blender but Blender has detected sporadic frame rate etc.
I get green speckles dancing and other obvious indicators.
I have run a few tests on the hardware and it seems more like the problem since your test of the Cycles GPU Crash file above was not a problem. I suppose other then my thoughts above I am a little embarrassed to have brought this to your attention. Still it seemed like only Blender was causing this but then only Blender was pushing the GPU to it's limits. With things like 4096 shadow maps trying to get cycles like quality out of Eevee etc., which still falls short but has potential moving slowly forward.
They say it will take a couple of weeks to replace the card if their testing shows it has issues, so I will be offline until it is replaced.

I found a way to reproduce this following the Procedural Crystal tutorial.

I also ran it with --debug-gpu flag and got loads of output there.
This Event in the Viewer is of the Level: Application Error
Here is the Blender Event Viewer log...
Here is the Event Viewer during a Blender crash in this situation, where the NVidia Driver is failed. I remind you this is a high-end system and it simply can not be out of Memory.
I've been getting green flicker with latest NVidia drivers and then also this same crash will occur.

Okay well I've made a cross reference issue with the developer as well.
I've posted an example of this as requested the animation slider will reveal the issue. Further one can still grab the same line in a different location? and see the mesh updating as expected.
I posting on Stack Exchange and someone kindly explained the author says it's beyond his ability due to limitations in Blender.

The rc2 does open this. It can be closed or deleted thanks.

Okay sorry found it posted bug.
I have a single frame (#242) 100 MB Alembic abc exported from Houdini that crashes Blender 2.7.8c trying to import. Is anyone interested in getting this file and using it to debug this seemingly broken blender importer?
Where or how can I submit this bug report with file?
I don't really care about anything in the file.
Is there some guidelines for exporting alembic files from Houdini 16 that I'm missing? Like Dos & Don'ts. Thing is you really need some of the per vertex color stuff, because that can't be reconstructed from the poly-soup.
I've not used it much just testing at this point.
Should I try waiting for or the latest dev version?
