German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
Explanation: It depends on the general context. A mathematics type or someone who is careful in using the language will probably say 'computationally intensive', while an engineer (including a software engineer or programmer) will almost certainly say 'compute-intensive'.
FYI: number of Google hits for:
'computationally intensive': 34000
At the risk of being rude, with these kinds of numbers it's dead easy to find representative examples.
