Despite Xbox being quite generous about the details surrounding its next-gen console, some information are still kept under tight wraps, and likely will remain so. One of these, the source code for the console's Graphics Processing Unit, has been stolen from a hacker who threatens to leak it. The individual, who claims to be a female, got a hold of the source codes for Navi 10, Navi 21 and Arden GPUs, the latter being what's inside the Xbox Series X according to her.
“In November 2019, I found AMD Navi GPU hardware source codes in a hacked computer,” the hacker told TorrentFreak. “The user didn’t take any effective action against the leak of the codes.”
AMD has filed at least two DMCA notices against Github repos with source code relating to AMD's Navi and Arden GPUs, which have since been taken down. However, the hacker told TorrentFreak that if there's no buyer doesn't for the rest of the code, she will "just leak everything".
“I haven’t spoken to AMD about it because I am pretty sure that instead of accepting their mistake and moving on, they will try to sue me. So why not just leak it to everyone?” she added.
She estimates the source code to be valued at $100 million and threatens to leak everything if there is no buyer.
AMD on the other hand wrote in a statement that "the stolen graphics IP is not core to the competitiveness or security of our graphics products" and they are progressing with a criminal investigation.
