They're different types of cores that do more or less the same job, but in a different way. The performance between them is not necessarily identical (nor even with the same company's cores from different cards), so you can't accurately directly compare them by number without adjusting for the performance differences. As far as I'm aware, they just do most of the huge amount of math that is necessary to render a frame.

@ Blazorthorn ;

Okay, my stupid question then ; i thought the cudas and streams made the data go from the gpu to the rest of the system, like a highway for the data to go through, the more lanes, the more traffic can pass. Or is that my noobish way of saying the same as you do ?

CUDA cores and stream processing cores are floating point processors. They do a lot of floating point math.
