AMD has confirmed that a hacker has stolen and leaked some of the source code for its custom Xbox Series X graphics processor, as well as that for an upcoming PC-based graphics card.
We believe the stolen graphics IP is not core to the competitiveness or security of our graphics products [and] we are not aware of the perpetrator possessing any other AMD [intellectual property], an AMD statement explains.
