Xbox Series X Graphics Source Code Reportedly Stolen, Being Held for $100 Million Ransom

hacker has reportedly stolen the Xbox Series X graphics source code and is holding it to ransom.

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.
Segments of code have been posted on GitHub, and subsequently removed. The hacker is asking for $100 million for the code and is threatening to dump the entirety of the stolen data if a buyer isn't found.

The fact that AMD has issued a DMCA takedown notice on the repository where the data was being held would suggest that this is a legitimate breach. Later in the official statement, AMD made it clear that the stolen data "is not core to the competitiveness or security of our graphics products."
You can read the details of the DMCA request over on GitHub where it is noted that the data has been 'forked' (copied) to other repositories after the first set was taken down.

In lighter Xbox Series X news, the console's full specifications were revealed earlier in the month. If you'd like to compare it to its main competition, the PS5, you can check out our Xbox Series X vs PS5 comparison chart here.

The question everyone is probably going to ask is what happens if the source code is leaked? How exactly does that affect the xbox?

Wouldn't matter to me

I'm an XBOX gamer, I honestly don't care about Sony outside of their cross-platform support decisions...I'm not even opposed to owning a Playstation console tbh

n*ggas still just use it. You'd be an idiot to pay for something that's yours and you'll mass produce anyway. Especially when you probably have patents on it anyway.
