The hacker claims that they uncovered the source code in November of last year, but didnt inform AMD of the leak, according to TorrentFreak . AMD says it wasnt aware of the theft until December.

I havent 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? said the alleged hacker in an interview with TorrentFreak.

The hacker that obtained the code claims its valued at $100 million USD (about $140 million CAD). AMD says the security of its graphics cards has not been compromised.

AMD released the following statement about the leaked GPU code:

While we are aware the perpetrator has additional files that have not been made public, we believe the stolen graphics IP is not core to the competitiveness or security of our graphics products. We are not aware of the perpetrator possessing any other AMD IP.

We are working closely with law enforcement officials and other experts as a part of an ongoing criminal investigation.

The hacker behind the leak says that if they dont find a buyer, they will just leak everything.

Though AMDs GPU code appearing online will likely have little impact on the release of the Xbox Series X later this year which Microsoft says is despite the COVID-19 outbreak its clear AMD is concerned that its intellectual property has appeared on the internet.

Microsoft recently revealed an extensive list of the Xbox Series Xs technical specs .

A similar situation occurred leading up to the Xbox Ones release. Back in 2013, hacker SuperDaE attempted to sell a Durango the code-name for the Xbox One on.

The hacker reportedly tricked Microsofts developer portal into selling an Xbox One development kit to him. The Australian police eventually raided SuperDaEs home, though its unclear if the development kit was ever recovered.
