The WebKit MiniBrowser redirects “about:gpu” to “webkit://gpu”—which is the
actual URI for the page.

The “webkit://gpu“ URI will work fine in Cog without needing any changes; as
long as you have a recent build of WPE WebKit which includes the needed patch
(for example the 2.27.2 development release [1], or a build from “trunk”).
