Fix the calculation of GPU memory when running under OS 10.13 High Sierra.

I've not had any issues since upgrading , but my choice to go from 7.8.3 was I noticed my AM CPU WU with 1 day 5hr run times.
Now this is odd to me , the machine running is a Dell Latitude E6410 and OSX 10.9 with 4gb and an i5 M540 CPU and Samsung 256gb SSD and I have 3 of this same model laptops and via Windows 7 the WU is around 6hr. I assume that being a different application written for another platform its a larger number of clock cycles per WU and packs the same payload as a GPU WU but is being ran on CPU via OSX?
If the WU are the same payload data size and clock cycles count required of processing as the they are both version 2.03 then I have a problem!
I know its not a MAC running OS but Hackintosh should not be discouraged!

Mac version is compiled from the same source code, so there shouldn't be more than 10-20% difference in run times compared to Windows and Linux versions.
