Exclusive: Here’s The Deal About AMD’s Stolen GPU IP
So AMD's GPU IP theft has been making headlines and while no one was sure what got stolen, we were able to talk to multiple individuals (who wish to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) that not only viewed the files while they were on GitHub, but have vast experience with Verilog (the software the files are written in) and microarchitecture design. What they told us is in-line with the official statement made by AMD and something AMD investors and fans would be glad to hear.
AMD has already given its official statement on the issue and while the company made it clear that it will be pursuing the theft under the full extent of the law and it consists of "just a subset", it doesn't provide any details that readers would be looking to hear. This article is a short write up to remedy that. For the purposes of this article, I am simply going to note down the main takeaways from my chat.
