For what it's worth, I see "Compute" used all the time to
refer to this stuff. OpenCL stands for Open Computing
Language and you'll see it reference "compute devices"
frequently in documentation about it. CUDA (originally) stood
for Compute Unified Device Architecture.
We're all in the business of computation but the hardware
accelerated processing people seem pretty keen on using
"compute" to describe what they do. DCompute would fit right
in and its purpose would be clear to anyone in that
particular field, I think.
When I see compute I think also at mir glas, BLAS, GEMM stuff,
i.e. HPC stuff. There is often GPGPU involved but not necessarily.
