The news arrives through a blog post on the AMD website, where the hardware company explained the situation. "We were contacted by someone who claimed to have test files related to a subset of our current and future graphics products," the statement reads.

According to a report from TorrentFreak, this stolen data was found in a hacked computer and includes source code for AMD's Big Navi and Arden GPUs. The latter is rumoured to be the Xbox Series X 12 teraflop GPU.

so like, what can one do with all this code? can they hack the console/new AMD GPUs? Not sure why would anyone spend 100m dollars on this.

lmao

If you're gonna do that, selling it to the highest bidder via bitcoin seems like a much smarter move than straight up asking microsoft/amd for 100 fucking million dollars, they aren't getting a penny lol

Source code for the graphics?

Well at least it’s not the source code for the teraflops.

Was reading about the whole fiasco on the AMD Reddit. Apparently some young lady tried to do it under the guise of discovering a vulnerability and wanting AMD to patch up their security. The way she went about it was so terribly bad that I honestly doubt that was her intent...

Also, already a thread

Yeah, but the title for that is nowhere near as eyecatching. Plus, a different news source was used.

I wouldn't fuck with Bill Gates' baby like that. I don't think the thief knows who they're playing with.

Better put some respect on Bill Gates name!
