Features Key features of the Radeon HD 6670  vs GeForce GT 630 PCIe x8 

memory bandwidth Rate at which data can be read from or stored in onboard memory

Other than DDR4 memory, Skylake would also feature PCIe 4.0 functionality which doubles the bandwidth over PCIe 3.0 but it is known that no GPU currently takes benefit from the extra bandwidth available on PCIe 3.0 or even 2.0 so only if NVIDIA’s Maxwell requires massive bandwidth from the PCIe 4.0 slots would we see any real time performance benefit.

pixel rate Number of pixels a graphics card can render to the screen every second

Radeon HD 6670
6.4 GPixel/s
GeForce GT 630 PCIe x8
7.22 GPixel/s
In general AMD is able to either deliver the same performance at much better quality or better performance at the same quality as Ivy Bridge.

texture rate Speed at which a graphics card can perform texture mapping

Radeon HD 6670
19.2 GTexel/s
GeForce GT 630 PCIe x8
14.4 GTexel/s
Alot of speculation built up around the new card that whether they would power the high-end or low-end lineup of next generation cards and it looks like the GK208 was just a low end chip with high-end compute capabilities of the GK 110 core that would end up in the new GT 640 and GT 630 graphic cards.

floating point performance How fast the gpu can crunch numbers

Radeon HD 6670
GeForce GT 630 PCIe x8
692.7 GFLOPS
No, three- and four-way setups are often the domain of power users in need of massive floating-point math.

shading units Subcomponents of the gpu, these run in parallel to enable fast pixel shading

Interestingly enough, this is one area where the mobile GPUs have moved ahead of the desktop world - NVIDIA's Tegra GPUs reuse programmable pixel shader ALUs for frame buffer ops.
