(Compute Unified Device Architecture) Cuda Cores it is the processor of video card. Streaming processor is a concept that allows graphics cards to have optimized dedicated CPU  power render graphics.  CUDA and Streaming Processor has no difference.

They are the same. The exact name is "STREAm PROCESSOR" (SP) but since Fermi Architecture NVIDIA change the name to CUDA cores. So there's no difference. When the Universal Shader Architecture (USA) cards first came out both AMD and Nvidia called them SP. Nvidia went the way of CUDA, and now it calls them as CUDA CORES. I think they changed the name again. But they are still the same thing. Even AMD just came out with a new name but still they are still all basically SP.
