Cannot allocate all RAM to Resolve

PostWed Dec 06, 2017 7:40 pm

I have 16GB RAM in 2015 MacBook Pro but cannot set "Pre-Allocated System Memory" in preferences above 8100 MB. All other applications are closed. In Premiere, I can set it to 12GB max.

That it should not matter: resolve will use the ram if necessary.
