A little bit out of topic but "such a nice scene" :) I like it a lot, and even the cycles version comes out quite nicely but when I see it together side by side and start comparing it to lux with cache the version from cycles doesn't look correct... the speed itself is an important factor of course but finally what You get is an image and for me is more important the quality of realism than some numbers

I my tests, the best way to get a good lighting propagation in cycles is setting it to full gi (128 bounces), slower, but much better in realism, can you test your scene in cycles with the Full Gi preset?

Very nice comparison, I'm very amazed by LuxCore Cache performance and looks.
And the scene, WOW.
Well done.
