Even though all modern GPUs are technically a type of "stream processor," it seems that Nvidia doesn't want to push whatever they're working on as yet another stream processing-based initiative. Whatever it is that they're doing, it's supposed to make the GPU a better fit for general-purpose computation by adapting the GPU itself to different types of HPC problems.
