Good explanation here in this thread from acrillycaltair. http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...-of-RAM/page18

MS is splitting the memory between O/S.
MS's solution is more like having two computers. (Hard to explain if you haven't used Hyper-V).
But the bus is shared between the CPU's and the GPU and the memory.
The way MS is splitting/reserving memory is hte same as SOnsy splitting/reserving memory for the O/S.
That's a software thing.
I'm talking about a hardware thing.
If I am understanding correctly, it's selectable in the software how much goes where, much like you can dedicate RAM to a GPU in a laptop that has shared memory in it's BIOS.
As Cerny has said he wants it to be really easy to work with initially, and initially it does, it looks and acts like a PC. But once you scratch the surface, a whole new (ok lets not beat around the bush it's a cousin to the Cell idea) way of working opens up.
