Seems there is a Bug in 7.8.2 & 7.8.3 that results in newer AMD Macs showing the wrong GPU Memory.
Update to 7.8.4 to solve the problem;
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=11990#82890

Seems more than 10.13.x is affected,

Operating System : Darwin 16.7.0

Coprocessors : [2] AMD AMD Radeon HD - FirePro D300 Compute Engine (-2048MB) OpenCL: 1.2
Operating System : Darwin 16.7.0

Coprocessors : AMD AMD Radeon Pro 580 Compute Engine (0MB) OpenCL: 1.2
Operating System : Darwin 16.7.0

Coprocessors : AMD AMD Radeon HD Tahiti XT Prototype Compute Engine (-1024MB) OpenCL: 1.2
Operating System : Darwin 15.0.0

Coprocessors : [2] AMD AMD Radeon HD - FirePro D500 Compute Engine (-1024MB) OpenCL: 1.2
Operating System : Darwin 14.5.0

etc. etc...

I updated to see if it fixed my other problem...it didn't.
