The interface from processors to the memory controller is the 16-byte-wide PowerPC 6XX bus. The interfaces from memory controller to memory DIMMs (labeled SMI bus) are each 8 bytes wide, but memory DIMMs are installed in pairs, so the bandwidth of the total path from processor to memory controller to memory is well matched. 1 GBps. Each remote I/O port can operate at 1 GBps (500 MBps bidirectional). However, since the second RIO port is used internally as a failover path in the event of failures, the theoretical maximum system I/O bandwidth is also 1 GBps (500 MBps bidirectional).

The electronics complex of the p615 is contained in a compact, unified package. The GX bus provides a four-byte path in each direction for data and addresses to the I/O subsystem. Through the GX bus, the processor and memory are connected to the six hot-plug PCI-X slots, the various integrated controllers, the converged service processor (CSP), and backplanes for plugging in disk and media drives.
