Deinterlace and possibly some high-quality scale filters.
They are trivially parallelizable to a high degree but still involve
a lot of computations, and there is also a wide range of alternative
algorithms if the chose one happens not to work well on a GPU.
Other areas IMO are unlikely to give a convincing improvement, especially
if all you have is half a man-year in resources.
