-Animation and shark model by Carlos Parmentier

-Cpu i9-7940X @4Ghz

-Ram: 128GB

-SSD or Nvme is a must have.

-More than 8GB gpu is needed, when solving ww I hit the 8GB limit.

-Cache option was turned off for both flip and ww.

-Beauty render with water, displacement and nice reflections is planned.
