I managed to reproduce the same crash in Windows 10 too (I was fast resizing the windows while on Viewport shading - Material preview)
Windows crashed and didn't boot after and had to use the troubleshoot options to restart the system. The NVIDIA driver installed in Windows is 456.71 Using the open source drivers in linux didn't crash the system, just the NVIDIA drivers seem to have issues.
This is the debug files but couldn't find a crash.txt.

I downloaded and tested Blender for Artists which is a fork of Blender (I believe its based on Blender 3.0 alpha) and I could reproduce the same crash in the same conditions.

Reinstalled Linux Mint 20.1 and tested Nvidia 465.27 driver, and then 440.100 and then 460.84 then 390. The last two didn't work at all. Still experience the same crashes with the first two drivers.
Installed Elementary OS and Manjaro Gnome. Same problem. At this point I'm clueless about this hole thing. Maybe someone can give me an idea.

From Linux Mint 20.1 driver manager I can only choose 465.27 (New Feature Branch Version i believe) or 460.80 (Production Branch Version) both are the latest in the repo. Both gave similar crashes I will manually install 460.84 and 465.31 which are the absolute latest.
Two weeks ago I installed 465.27 (I'm not quite sure about the real numbers - I believe it was 465.27) from ubuntu ppa and it worked for a few days. I also suspect a linux firmware update done right before the troubles with drivers loading at startup. The firmware update could of messed something. I will reinstall Mint and leave the linux firmware update unchecked, and test the absolute latest drivers from NVIDIA page and Ubuntu ppa-s.
