nickbatz Posted July 18, 2022 Share Posted July 18, 2022 I have 64GB in my Intel Mac (specs below). Affinity Photo uses a whole lot of that, especially when I have multiple pictures open with Save History With Doc enabled. And that's fine. The issue is that it doesn't relinquish all that RAM when I quit the program. I'm not ready to use words like "memory leak' that are supposed to make one sound intelligent, but something doesn't seem right. Memory Clean (I think that's the utility's name) is unable to free up the RAM. This isn't a huge deal, except that I run music software that uses a whole lot of RAM as well, and I'm not used to having to restart before launching it. It does become unreliable very quickly if I don't. So two questions: 1. Is it just me? 2. Is this better in M1/M2 Macs? Just curious, because I'm planning on upgrading to a Mac Studio in the near future. Computer specs: Mac Pro 5,1, 12x3.46 GHz, 64MB RAM, Radeon RX 560 4 GB video card, macOS 10.14.6 Mojave. All SSDs, not using spinning drives. TIA RichardMH 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
