Yes, that is the issue I wanted to discuss in the OP.

If hardware vendors create close source C++ compiler that uses 
internal knowledge of how their GPUs work, then it might be 
difficult to compete for other languages. You'd have to compile 
to metal/vulkan and fine tune it for each GPU.

Or just compile to C++…

I don't know. I guess we will find out in the years to come.
