I fear the conversation will go like this, like it has for me:

This was literally what happened to me when I saw the headline.
Same here ...
DCompute may be a established term in that specific community but
most other people do not pay attention to it. Yet, its a massive
feature for any programming language, that is frankly being
obscured by its naming.
While D-GPU may not be the most accurate term, as people may
assume its about graphical programming, marketing and accuracy
are not exactly the same. But that can be solved with later
having D-DirectX, D-OpenGL...
