Description Of Issue
I recently replaced my old iMac (iMac 2014 running MacOS 10.13 High Sierra) with a new one (iMac 2017 running MacOS 11.1 Big Sur). I’ve noticed that the Roon Remote application uses much more RAM on the new machine (MacOS 11.1) than on the old machine (MacOS 10.13).
I’m wondering if there is a known reason why Roon Remote requires more RAM (close to 1 GB) on Big Sur. @support, is this something you can comment on and/or look into, please? – thanks!
Screenshots below are immediately after reboot of old and new machines:
