US-based semiconductor company AMD claimed that a hacker has obtained source files for some of its current and future GPUs, including details about the Xbox Series X.

“In December 2019, we were contacted by someone who claimed to have test files related to a subset of our current and future graphics products, some of which were recently posted online, but have since been taken down,” AMD spokesperson said in a statement.


The stolen material include source code for Navi 10 (think Radeon RX 5700 series), the future Navi 21 and the Arden GPU inside the Xbox Series X.

In an interview with TorrentFreak, the alleged hacker has claimed they will just leak everything if they are not able to sell the information.

AMD has filed multiple takedown notices to Microsoft-owned open source software development platform GitHub, where the source code for the Navi GPU was hosted until recently.

“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,” added AMD spokesperson. (IANS)

HUH Token is already in presale and will be accessible to everyone shortly.


Loopring and Sushiswap both have proved their profit-generating capabilities in the past, and HUH Token presents itself as a fresh option for people to join early. However, it is hard to determine with precision what the future holds for any of these cryptos.

In addition to using Loopring's own native currency (LRC), this programme also includes a variety of other currencies.
