I've rejected CPUs as an acronym, therefore my response is to 'triathlon'.

And I hereby vote to reject your rejection...

"CPU" is as commonplace an acronym that I consider it to have become adopted as a word in a similar way to such as we have for NASA or for going POSH...

One for Rob to adjudicate! :-)

If you look up any of the definitions of CPU they always spell it out as Central Processing Unit (CPU).
It's an acronym and nothing else.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_processing_unit
https://www.britannica.com/technology/central-processing-unit
It could stand any of these
CPU Central Policy Unit
CPU Critical Patch Update (Oracle)
CPU Conférence des Présidents d'Université (French: Conference of University Presidents)
CPU Claims Processing Unit (various organizations)
CPU Cost Per Unit
