Question Is this GPU artifacting or a game texture glitch?

Hello there everyone! Recently I bought an ASUS ROG Strix Rx 570 4GB. It's been working great but today when I launched MHW: Iceborne I noticed these visual isses:

I immediately closed the game assuming these were artifacts and launched different games hoping to run into it again, I also ran heaven benchmark for a few loops, Furmark for 30 minutes and MSI kombustor after it for 35 minutes without any artifacts.

After this I clean uninstalled my drivers and installed the latest beta drivers (the ones previously were 1 revision older). Since then I have not seen any other visual glitches in MHW after 4 hours of playtime (I also moved it to my SSD). Ultimately, my question is should I be worried about my GPU being close to dying or something? It's extremely confusing since I could not recreate the actual artifacting in any other game even before the driver reinstall. What other steps can I take to ensure everything is fine?

Specs:

Windows 10 (latest build)
Core i5-4690
ASUS ROG Strix Rx 570 4GB
Corsair VS 450W PSU
8GB RAM

Thank you for reading and helping me out!
