Point is that if you have a lot of product variations and want to display them all on the product grid it requires a lot of memory because of the large number of attibute combinations. Your site gets a PHP Memory limit error (check the server error logs and you’ll see).
So, I would recommend you to keep the variation swatches option disabled on grid or increase the memory limit to avoid the memory limit error.
