Pixelated preview even with RAM preview resolution set to full

Since one month now I have a pixelated preview problem. I went over the forum and didn't find a solution to my specific problem.

I updated After Effets CC to 15.0.0 and also updated my graphic card to the latest released driver. The problem is still there, I don't know how to fix it and I'm now seeking for advice from the community.

Asus X550L, Windows10 64-bit, Intel Core i7-4500U 2.40GHz, 8.00GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M, SSD   

- The fast preview is set to ''off (Final Quality)''

- The RAM preview resolution set to ''Full''

- I'm working with the magnification ratio set to 100%

- The assets are all made with shapes layer directly in after effects.

- The scene is not pixelated until I start previewing the animation. Although I can scroll manually in the timeline once all frame are cached and it follow accurately the chosen RAM preview resolution.

*I've notice when previewing that the pixelated render problem is equivalent to the ''Quarter'' RAM preview resolution. If I set the RAM preview resolution to ''Quarter'' and preview it is the exact same resolution, Although if I set it to ''Full'' the preview is as pixelated as if it would be set to ''Quarter''.

Just to make sure the easy answer is out of the way:
In the Preview panel, you're able to create different settings for the different keys that can trigger RAM preview. For example, you could have Numpad 0 set to full resolution, every frame, but have Spacebar set to quarter resolution, every 2 frames. Make sure your settings are set as desired for the key you're using.

It's been there for the last couple years now, since they first started the overhaul of the preview infrastructure.
