Primarily lots of online research. Windows tools usually support the
offsets, so screendumps help in some cases.

Unfortunately that is correct.

AFAIK the information is available from AMD under NDA. I can not sign such an
NDA, and even if I could and would, I could not use the information in an open

not very helpful.
