In my case, it was on i686 with nvidia driver (latest). But I've experienced 
the same behavior with 27.0.1453.93-1 on my laptop with intel graphics.

It did not crash ina "visible" way. Only processes stopped working becouse 
they were waiting for messages from another (sandbox), which has died - ps 
reported chromium-sandbox <defunct>, strace shown that one of the forked 
processes was trying to receive a message using msgrecv.
