      C++ AMP open specification.

      No, no it isn't. A single _implementation_ uses DX11 but the spec does not mandate this in any way just like OpenACC (and AMP) can be implemented via OpenCL but does not at all require it or even suggest it. Hence why there has already been an implementation of AMP via OpenCL for Clang.

      I get it, everyone hates Microsoft... but really, Googling for 5 seconds to fact check is not hard, people.
