by definition you can't assign more than a 'maximum' if there were one.
You can practically assign almost as much memory as you have free
memory available on your system. You can use the -m command line flag
to set the amount of memory each memcached instance uses.
The approach (and what makes memcached really useful) to allocating
more memory than you have on a single server is to run multiple
instances on multiple servers; this way you get a larger total amount
of memory. All clients will then distribute their cache requests
across multiple servers.
