I don't think _Float16 is storage only without AVX512FP16.

No need for "no real AVX512-FP16 instructions are generated".

I guess you're meaning that psABI is available for _Float16 even w/o
AVX512-FP16.

How about

+  <li>For both C and C++, The <code>_Float16</code> type is supported on
+      x86 systems with SSE2 enabled. Without <code>{-mavx512fp16}</code>,
+      no real AVX512-FP16 instructions are generated, all operations will be
+      emulated by software emulation and the <code>float</code> instructions.

So, is it AVX512-FP16 or AVX512FP16?

Sorry for the confusion, the official name is AVX512-FP16[1], and for
simplicity, AVX512FP16 is used in the mail thread.
