Lost in the Cracks? Waves Releases FLOW MOTION (FM Hybrid Synth)

I got an email yesterday 11/26 from "Sam" (test@test.com?) regarding the release announcement of Flow Motion, apparently a new hybrid, FM synth from Waves.  I have yet to check it out, but it's $39 right now. "Regular" price (as if it's been on the market for awhile now, lol) is $99.

As an owner of a classic Yamaha TX81Z using a cool and free editor (TX81Z Programmer), I am interested to check out how this new synth's sounds and behaves via its interface. I am not, however, getting my hopes up on potential CPU usage. I can't help but think it'll be like Waves' Element 2.0.

CPU Stuff: SPLAT / Ableton Live 10, Win10 x64, MSI M.Power Z97 mobo, MSI Radeon RX480, Intel i7-4790K @4GHz, 8GB RAM
HW Stuff: Saffire Pro40+Pro40 (Dual Setup), A500Pro, MicroLite 5x5, MIDISport 2x2, Ai3 (2), V-Synth XT, Q Rack, Virus Ti2, JV-1010, A6 Andromeda, TR-8, MS2000R, Minitaur, Spark, MS2000R, Quadraverb2, Midiverb2, Wedge, JBL LSR308's, Never-ending problems...

    Using the demo now. It sounds pretty good with many presets. I'm just not sure how much FM is actually being used, however. Sounds more subtractive synthesis to me. Also, it sounds very close to Z3TA+2 but with cleaner effects. It seems pretty resource heavy, as expected, maybe 30% more heavy then Element 2.0, but it depends on complexity of the sound/polyphony.

    Waves other synths, Codex and Element, are part of the Mercury bundle but not this.
